Thousands Of Protesters Descend On Wisconsin Capital
In the wake of the union-busting bill rammed through by Wisconsin Republicans, thousands of protesters showed up at the Capitol.
Within an hour and a half of the vote, the protesters had seized the building’s lower floors, creating an ear-splitting free-for-all of pounding drums, horns and whistles. Police all but gave up guarding the building entrances.
The state Department of Administration, which operates the building, estimated the crowd at about 7,000 people. There were no reports of violence as of late Wednesday evening.
The assembly is due to vote on the bill which will then be signed by the governor.Click here for reuse options!
