MADISON, Wis. — Police have made another round of arrests in the Wisconsin Capitol rotunda.
Protesters have been gathering in the rotunda during the noon hour almost daily for more than two years to sing against Republican Gov. Scott Walker. Police began arresting them on July 24 after a federal judge ruled officers can require large groups to get a permit. The protesters have refused to apply for any permits. Police have issued them around 200 tickets.
The singers sang on the Capitol lawn on Friday, as usual on that day of the week. Shortly before the noon hour ended several dozen moved into the rotunda. Police could be seen arresting three people but state Department of Administration officials say officers cited five people for not having a permit.
