Amazing Photo: Egyptians Turn Out to Support Wisconsin Counterparts

February 21, 2011

Few things help unite disparate peoples and disparate struggles like hard times. The Egyptians recently conquered one major hurdle and are now moving onto the next challenge. Wisconsin's unionized laborers, however, who are currently fighting state Republicans to keep their collective bargaining rights, have just begun their fight.

Here, a young man in Egypt today shows his solidarity with his Wisconsin comrades, reminding us all that our problems, like our supporters, are often universal. "One world, one pain."
