Thousands of people gather at the State Capitol in Madison for the “We Are One” rally and the “Memphis to Madison” rally to mark the 43rd anniversary of the death of civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. He was assassinated in Memphis 40 years ago today while helping public workers rally for their rights. 40 years later, public workers are again rallying for their rights to collective bargaining, this time in Madison, Wisconsin where Governor Scott Walker and a Republican legislature are attempting to outlaw most collective bargaining rights for public employees.
