Picture of the Day: Waking Up in the Wisconsin Capitol

Morning after Wisconsin - Allen Fredrickson Reuters - full.jpg

Last night, Republicans in the Wisconsin state Senate managed to pass legislation stripping collective-bargaining rights from public employees' unions, with thousands of protesters pushing into the Capitol building in Madison.

Above, protesters wake up in the Capitol Thursday morning, after fighting the collective-bargaining measure for weeks. Protesters have slept in the Capitol building for days on end since the night of Feb. 15, when hundreds first occupied the Capitol after a hearing on the bargaining legislation.
