March 11 marks the second anniversary of the passage of Wisconsin Act 10, Governor Scott Walker’s legislative assault on public sector unions in his state. To mark the movement that rose against Walker’s agenda, the filmmakers of the documentary We Are Wisconsin have designated March 11 the National Day of Recommitment to the fight for workers’ rights in Wisconsin and around the world.
