Capitol Occupation Documentation Station

Date: February 14, 2012 - 10:00am - February 15, 2012 - 6:00pm

Location

Wisconsin State Capitol- rm. 415 NW Tues., 300 NE Wed.
Intersection of State and Mifflin
Madison, WI

Last year’s protests have historical significance not only for Wisconsin but for the country as a whole, as in many ways what happened here was one of the inspirations for the nationwide occupy movement that began in September.

In an effort to better preserve the history of the Wisconsin Uprising, the organizers of the Capitol Information Station (which served as a crucial vehicle for information and networking during the Capitol Occupation), will be running a “Documentation Station” to help preserve the collective memory of last year’s events.  Over the course of two days, audio recorders, cameras, and artistic materials will be available in the Capitol for people to use to share their stories and memories of the past year.  

Organizers encourage anyone who participated in the protests to bring signs, posters, photographs (digital files or printed), pins, and other memorable items to contribute to the project!
