"It's the primary economic motive of corporations and the Republican party to get rid of unions so that people would be forced into a race to bottom and have to go hire themselves to the most abusive employer who pays the worst wages and doesn't offer any benefits. That's paradise as far as corporate America goes."
-- Matthew Rothschild, editor of The Progressive Magazine, on the massive, two-weeklong pro-union protests in Madison, Wisconsin, where crowds have risen from 10,000 to 100,000 supporters this past Saturday.

Interview with Matthew Rothschild, editor of The Progressive Magazine, conducted by Scott Harris
For more than two weeks, large numbers of Wisconsin union members and their supporters from across the U.S. have converged on the state capital in Madison to protest Republican Gov. Scott Walker's effort to slash state workers' rights. On Saturday, Feb. 26, an estimated 100,000 pro-union demonstrators swarmed the State Capitol making clear that the outcome of the fight over union collective bargaining rights in Wisconsin will have consequences far beyond the state's borders. Similar efforts by Republican governors to diminish union rights are underway in Ohio, Indiana, Florida and Tennessee. Story continues

Interview with T. Kumar, advocacy director with Amnesty International, conducted by Scott Harris
Widespread protests challenging autocratic regimes and monarchies across the Middle East and North Africa have now spread from Tunisia and Egypt to other countries in the Middle East, including: Bahrain, Yemen, Algeria, Morocco, Iran, Djibouti, Jordan, Kuwait, Sudan, Syria and Oman. However, the worst violence in this wave of unrest is now occurring in Libya, where the embattled leader Moammar Gadhafi, in power for 41 years, is engaged in a pitched battle with large numbers of his people allied with former members of the nation's military. Violently repressed protests in major cities soon devolved to an armed revolt, with large portions of Libya's territory now under the control of anti-Gadhafi rebels. The U.S. and United Nations have responded to the crisis by demanding Gadhafi step down from power and leave the country. Washington has imposed a freeze on Libya's U.S.-based assets and the European Union is enforcing an arms embargo. Story continues
