Protests Inside the Wisconsin Capitol Building May Come to an End


Thousands of people rallied in cities across the U.S. today to protest Wisconsin’s plan to reduce the rights of unions and similar proposals in Ohio, Tennessee, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, and Kansas. But the party at the Wisconsin Capitol might end Sunday, when thousands of demonstrators will no longer be allowed to sleep overnight in the Wisconsin Capitol building in Madison. We’ll see how this rule is enforced — since even some policemen have joined the protests — but demonstrators are reportedly being booted from the Capitol building at 4 p.m. tomorrow so it can be cleaned.
