Wisconsin Ripple EffectFebruary 22, 2011 - 6:18 PM | by: Faith Mangan
Unions demonstrated today on the West steps of Colorado’s Capitol to show solidarity with unions in Wisconsin. Sponsors of the event in Denver this afternoon included ProgressNow Colorado and Colorado AFL-CIO. A group of Tea Party activists, who did not have a permit, held a counter demonstration on the perimeter. State troopers and other law enforcement held a line between the two opposing groups as they debated and taunted each other. Turnout for the entire crowd was estimated in the 400-500 range. Check out the slide show of signs and participants from *both* sides.
