Labor Protesters Surround Tea Party at Palin Rally

Saturday, 16 Apr 2011 01:16 PM

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Hundreds of pro-union labor supporters are surrounding smaller groups of tea party members waiting for former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin to appear outside the Wisconsin Capitol.

Palin is slated to speak at the tea party's annual tax day rally.

But labor supporters still smarting from the passage of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's polarizing bill eliminating most public employees' collective bargaining rights are drowning out Palin's supporters, shouting, "Hey, hey, ho, ho, Scott Walker's got to go."

Walker is a Republican, and Palin is a former Republican vice presidential candidate.

People on the edges of the rally are arguing with each other over the size of government and corporate power.

Palin is expected to take the stage after noon.
