Two-Day Nationwide General Strike in Chile Against Austerity

Here. The protests are the biggest since the Pinochet dictatorship fell. This is also the first two-day general strike since Pinochet as well. I dunno, though, maybe the Wisconsin Democratic Party should get in touch and ask them to call it off and try a top-down, year-long process of recall instead.

I posted a link to an article about earlier protests a few weeks ago
