(via RightNetwork) Bloggers for Peace – This is an update from Jim. He’s on the ground and in the thick of things. He will be phoning in updates throughout the day.
Thousands of people are at the capitol today. Impossible to tell who the friendlies are right now.
The unions are out in force! The Barack Obama organizers are waiting for us. I can hear the crowd from blocks away.
Kerry Pickett called- “Leftist Organizers are begging union supporters not to confront opponents.”
UPDATE: Thousands of Walker’s supporters. Massive crowd. Chanting “Go Scott Go!” and “Pass The Bill!”
The pro-union protest ended at noon but thousands of union backers are still hanging around.
UPDATE: Inside the Capitol Building the pro-union groups are chanting. It’s deafening. I had to go to a back room to phone in this update.
Jim e-mailed this picture from the rally:
UPDATE: THOUSANDS of Tea Partiers are rallying on the capitol grounds. The union supporters are marching around the capitol grounds in a circle on the street. The union supporters do not have a permit to be on the capitol grounds. They haven’t had one all week! The police are keeping the two groups apart.
