MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Dozens of protesters are gathering in the Wisconsin Capitol before a noon rally expected to attract thousands of opponents of Gov. Scott Walker's plan to eliminate most collective bargaining rights for public employees.

Protestors have been at the Capitol for six days, and nearly 70,000 turned out for Saturday's rallies for and against the bill.

Some protestors are sitting in the Capitol rotunda plotting their Sunday strategy. Others are still curled up in sleeping bags throughout the building.

Jacob Cedillotootalian (sed-ee-yo-too-tal-yen) is a 27-year-old University of Wisconsin-Madison teaching assistant. He slept under a coat rack on the Capitol's second floor hallway and says it's the third night he's spent there.

The English instructor says normalcy would be nice, but he doesn't see an end to the stalemate over union rights.
