VIDEO: Michigan Protesters Tear Down Americans for Prosperity Tent
Posted in: labor
Earlier today AFSCME reported that 100,000 people showed up at the state capital in Lansing to protest the passage of Michian’s “right to work” law by the Republican dominated state legislature. Why anyone thought it was a good idea to throw up an anti-union tent in the midst of that is anybody’s guess, but Americans for Prosperity did, and Michigan protesters tore it down.
Union representatives are also reporting that the crowd outside the Romney building have been tear gassed:
Detroit News confirms that pepper spray was used to “secure the scene.”
AP reports that Governor Snyder could sign the bill as early as Friday.
