Madison-based photographer Dana O’Shea snapped these images of the protests in Wisconsin, and is allowing us to publish them with permission.
“In the last two weeks I have gone up to the Capitol three times because I feel like I just have to document this amazing moment in history,” O’Shea said. “What has started here in Madison is spreading to Michigan, Indiana, New Jersey and other states.”
“The atmosphere at the Capitol is peaceful yet powerful. The union protesters and their supporters are singing and drumming and chanting. It sends chills up my spine to hear thousands, in unison chanting, ‘What does democracy look like…this is what democracy looks like.'”
