This is the first indoor Solidarity Singalong held in the Capitol rotunda after the Department Of Administration announced people would face arrests for holding protests in the Capitol or other state buildings.

This may well be the most substantial plank of Walker’s job-creating program.

This is the Capitol press conference from that morning, helmed by the extraordinary Stacy Harbaugh of the Madison chapter of the ACLU: http://www.wiseye.org/Programming/VideoArchive/EventDetail.aspx?evhdid=5587
