- Singers are holding dueling protests at the Wisconsin Capitol.A loosely organized group of protesters known as the Solidarity Singers sang outside Monday after members were arrested three days in a row last week for failing to get a permit to be inside the building. The group has been holding noon sing-alongs at the Capitol nearly every day for two years.The rotunda was occupied by a largely Republican group that supports Governor Scott Walker.
Conservative blogger David Blaska says he organized that sing-along to show just how easy it is to get a free permit. Capitol police began their crackdown on protesters without permits after a federal judge ruled earlier this month that large groups must have a permit to gather in the building.(Copyright 2013 Associated Press - All Rights Reserved)
