Madison Protests….Day 3

February 18, 2011

Today was the 3rd day of protests over Governor Scott Walker’s Budget Repair

Capital Grounds after Tuesday's Protests

Bill.  It’s amazing how many people have been turning out for this.  Estimates are in the 30,000-40,000 range for yesterday’s noon rally as well as today’s.

I had a distinctive vantage point to view today’s rally on the steps of the King St. side of the state Capitol.  I was in a law office in a mediation on the 8th floor of the building at 33 E. Main St….truly ground zero for today’s activities.

I can’t remember ever experiencing anything like these past few days.  There’s an odd vibe in the air as so many of the protestors are very angry.  I can understand where that comes from yet it truly made Central Madison feel odd these past few days.

They also don’t leave without leaving their mark.  The trash thrown everywhere from these masses of people is appalling.  I get your right to protest, just leave our city the way you found it….please.
