Police drag a protester away from the vestibule in front of the Wisconsin state Assembly chamber in the Capitol in Madison. Protesters had been blocking the entrances to the chamber, hoping to prevent the Assembly from meeting. Thousands of demonstrators took over the Capitol on Wednesday night after Wisconsin Republican senators voted to curb collective bargaining rights for public union workers in a surprise vote with no Democrats present.
