The Student Faction of the Wisconsin Uprising

On February 14, 2011, the 2011 Wisconsin protests against Act 10 began with students.  The University of Wisconsin-Madison Teaching Assistant Association organized a Valentine's Day protest with the delivery of "We ♥ UW: Don't Break My ♥" valentines to the governor’s office at the state capitol building. Throughout the duration of the protest, students, both college and high school, and even younger, were an active and vocal portion of the movement.  The student’s involvement provided the protesters much needed energy, enthusiasm, hope, and humor to the long cold winter days.
