Dispatch from Wisconsin: People not giving up despite sneaky move by Republican Sennators in dark of night

In 30 minutes, in the middle of the night, 18 Republican state senators undid 50 years of civil rights in Wisconsin. They used a sneaky procedural move to strip nearly all collective bargaining rights from public service workers. But the people of Wisconsin aren't giving up yet. They're planning actions for the rest of the week with the aim of taking back their government. And NUPGE representatives are in Wisconsin to support them.
