Luciano from Brazen Video Productions interviewed Rudy Fox inside the Wisconsin State Capitol earlier this week, before a judge ordered the remaining demonstrators out. Despite stage 4 colon cancer, reports Luciano, Fox slept in the Capitol for a week and a half straight, drumming, dancing and chanting with other protesters. Fox cares for her husband, who is paraplegic, and has taken many battered women and children into her home over the years.
