Wisconsin Capitol To Close Sunday Afternoon After Non-Stop Protests


Earlier today, as the process was beginning to clear out beds and other equipment, I saw a young protester wearing a green, crossing guard-style vest to mark him as something of a volunteer protest marshal, discussing with two police officers how to coordinate the action.

In an interesting note, one key group is expressing solidarity with the sleepover protesters: The Wisconsin Professional Police Association, whose executive director Jim Palmer called on members to sleep tonight among the protesters.
