Demonstrators Re-enter Wisconsin State Capitol

Luciano from Brazen Video Productions shot this video yesterday of demonstrators re-entering the Wisconsin State Capitol after someone from the inside managed to open a door and let people in. The “people’s house” had been restricted all week. Luciano reports that one person was arrested during the action, and no one was hurt. A judge yesterday ordered that the Capitol be cleared of demonstrators, but that it re-open for business as usual on Monday.
