Solidarity Singers look to get Capitol protest tickets thrown out

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - An organizer for the “Solidarity Sing-Along” at the Capitol rotunda says he’s received 33 citations for gathering without a permit.

Brandon Barwick says protests have been “intense” since Capitol police started cracking down on protesters.

A federal judge Ok’d a new rule from Governor Scott Walker’s administration to require a permit for 20 or more people gathering at the rotunda.

Since July 24, over 200 tickets have been issued - each with a $200 fine.

Attorneys representing some protesters have called the tickets “bogus” and have managed to get them dropped in court, Barwick says he plans to do the same.

Meanwhile, the organizer says daily sing-along protests will continue until Governor Walker is out of office and that they are constitutionally protected.
