One Day Stronger

Abby Zimet

Thousands of fired-up protesters outside the Wisconsin Capitol, now apparently closed. Chants of "Our House!" and "This is what democracy looks like!" Unbelievable scene; live stream  here. Meanwhile, legal questions on last night's slimy GOP vote abound. So do hope and determination. Protester Tom Spellman, "Scott Walker is going to go down in history as one of the greatest union organizers there ever was."

From the live-chat: "There's alot more of us than them."
