Jacquelyn Gill's Video of AFSCME March at Wisconsin Capitol

Your basic protest action, demonstrated.

How did so many Americans forget so quickly?


While trying to do a whole bunch of other things, I've been catching glimpses of the protest from a live webcam outside the Capitol. The protesters have been marching around the Capitol since this morning, and their numbers have been growing and growing. There were tens of thousands when the video above was posted. Now there are MANY tens of thousands more.

Screen shot:

Estimates are 60,000 today.

They are calling for 100,000 to show up on Monday.

It looked like there were fewer than 1,000 TeaBaggers bussed in from --- who knows where --- to see Breitbart attempt to rouse the rabble. Didn't work. According to reports from the scene, the protesters "surrounded" the TeaBaggers and treated them with kindness and love. ;-) TeaBaggers packed it in an hour early.

On Wisconsin!

On, Wisconsin! On, Wisconsin!
Stand up, Badgers, sing!
"Forward" is our driving spirit,
Loyal voices ring.
On, Wisconsin! On, Wisconsin!
Raise her glowing flame
Stand, Fellows, let us now
Salute her name!
