Wednesday’s Capitol Protest Led to More Than 20 Arrests – More Pictures and Video

MacIver News Service | July 25, 2013

[Madison, Wisc…] Protesters joined together at the Capitol again on Wednesday to participate in the Solidarity Sing-Along, which has been occurring daily for more than two years. However, they did not apply for a permit, so the event was determined to be unlawful by the Capitol Police. 22 protesters were given 25 citations for not having a permit, while one individual was given a disorderly conduct citation for spitting on a protester. The singers told the MacIver News Service that this will not stop them.

Sen. Bob Jauch (D-Poplar) interjected after the arrests began drawing a comparison to Tiananmen Square in China. See Jauch’s comments at the end of the video below:

The MacIver Institute will continue to post video and pictures of the events at the Capitol. See more pictures here.
