Video of the protests below the fold if you like.
I say the word “man” too much and I swear too much. I will be working on both in the future.
Even last Saturday I was taking photos and video and moving on quickly, not really trying to say too much in front of anyone. I still was getting a few cockeyed looks and was a bit surprised. Ann Althouse in her last few posts on the subject is reporting that some are losing their grip a bit down there. Worth reading her blog if you have a few moments. I have a feeling that it is only a matter of time before there is hardcore violence either in or around the capitol.
My crowd estimate of “5 to 10 thousand” in this video is very very wrong, that number isn’t even close.
This was some sort of accident. I figured out later that I was actually in the middle of a group of Madison city workers that were parading through the center of the capitol and that is why I got into the capitol building so easily.
Same deal as the last video – I was still in the procession of city workers and I zipped right through the epicenter of the protest. They would organize certain groups outside and then that particular group would parade through the center of the rotunda.
I think the look on the woman’s face when she sees me filming the garbage and used signs piled up on the war memorial says it all.
Garbage, and the trashing of the capitol. Again, I think I am in the wrong place as the hallway was cleared for another parade.
