Michael Moore addresses protesters in Wisconsin

The film-maker Michael Moore yesterday gave a speech in Madison, Wisconsin, to workers who have been taking action since the middle of February. The workers were moved to protest when Tea Party Republicans launched an attach on collective bargaining rights. There has been massive solidarity, even from local police, who refused to evict protesters from the state capitol building.

Moore stresses the fact that, despite the protestations of the wealthy, America is not broke. It is awash with money, but that money is not in the hands of the ordinary people. Instead, just 400 of the super-rich have more money than the poorest 155 million Americans. The only thing that’s broke is the moral compass of the ruling elite.

    Michael Moore is an inspiration. What he is saying about the wealth of America being in the hands of a tiny minority is also repeated here in Great Britain, and we need to start making a lot of noise about it.
