Wednesday marks one year of protests


MADISON (WKOW) -- As we look forward to potential recall elections of Governor Scott Walker, Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch and four state senators, protesters are taking a look back, this "Week of Action."

February 15 marks one year since protesters began to sleep at the State Capitol.

Wisconsin Wave is helping sponsor a documentation station.

Through Wednesday, they're asking anyone who demonstrated this past year to come and share their stories.

They're looking for posters, pins and will conduct informal interviews.

They say it's a way to never forget.

"I think it's really important we know for ourselves what happened and how things played out cause the fight for collective bargaining is far from over," said Harriet Rowan, a protester.

"A year they've been protesting at the Capitol having recall elections protesting that the state having millions of dollars in damage and security costs for all of the state and what they have for all that effort is Governor Walker leading them by eight points," said Brian Schimming, Vice Chair of the Wisconsin Republican Party.

Schimming is talking about a recent Marquette University Poll.

It shows if a recall election were to happen right now, Governor Walker would win.
