State capital crackdown on protestors continues, 20 more arrested

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Another 20 singers were hauled away Monday, as a crackdown continued on the anti-Walker group that refuses to get a state gathering permit at the Capitol.

As police handcuffed the alleged violators, the rest of the Solidarity Singers sang on.

They ended their performance by chanting, “We’re not going away.”

The singers have been an almost daily fixture at the statehouse since the massive 2011 pro-union protests.

Police never cracked down on the group’s refusal to get the required permit until last month, when a federal judge upheld most of the permitting system.

The Walker administration’s crackdown began July 24th. 

Around 160 citations issued.
