MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Protests have begun at the Wisconsin Capitol for the sixth straight day.

Hundreds of people have gathered inside the Capitol as snow turns to freezing rain that is making walking outside the building a challenge.

Hundreds of protesters are chanting, "This is what Democracy looks like" and "union busting!" They are banging on drums and dancing in the Capitol Rotunda. The official rally kicks off at noon.

Yesterday's rallies with people demonstrating for and against a bill that would strip public employees of most of their collective bargaining rights drew 68,000 people, but the weather was warmer and dry.
