Michigan firefighters, union members storm Capitol in protest of anti-union legislation
In a scene similar to protests in Madison, Wisc., hundreds of firefighters and union members from around the state have jammed the rotunda of the Michigan Capitol building protesting what they call anti-union legislation percolating in the Legislature.

Loudly chanting, "Shame on you" and "We are union," the protesters can be heard loudly in the Senate chamber, where bills to strengthen the powers of emergency financial managers for distressed cities and school districts were expected to be acted upon today.

It is the first time a union-led protest -- several in recent weeks -- has spilled into the Capitol and caused a ruckus. The Senate continued its agenda, but the shouts from the lobby were a distraction.

"They've awakened a sleeping giant," said Bill Black, a lobbyist for the Teamsters union who stood in the crowd closest to the Senate chamber.

Don't worry. There are NO Republican union members so only the Left will suffer the anti-union after-effects. ~smirk~

Nothing will come of this. I just hope they don't trash the place like the bums in WI did.

It's a real shame that only those who are ignorant of the ultimate intentions of these whatevers - one hesitates to dignify them w/ the noun "people" - is.

They would do well to remember the words of Pastor Niemoller:
First they came for the communists, and I was not a communist, so I did not protest.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I was not a trade unionist, so I did not protest.
Then they came for the Jews, and I was not a Jew, so I did not protest.
Then they came for me, and there was no one left to protest.

Those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it.
