6th straight day of protests at Wisconsin Capitol

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW, AP) – The sixth straight day of protesting has begun at the Wisconsin Capitol.

Hundreds of people have congregated inside the Capitol as snow and freezing rain is making walking outside the building a challenge.

Protestors are chanting, "This is what Democracy looks like" and "union busting!" They are banging on drums and dancing in the Capitol Rotunda. The official rally kicked off at noon.

Saturday's rallies drew 68,000 people who came to demonstrate for and against the bill that would strip public employees of most of their collective bargaining rights.
