Protesters put signs around a bust of former progressive Wisconsin Gov. and Sen. Robert La Follette in the state capitol in Madison, Wisconsin on February 23, 2011. La Follette, who was a prominent progressive figure in the late 19th and early 20th century, championed labor and other worker's causes. The Wisconsin budget proposed by Republican Gov. Scott Walker includes cuts in benefits for state workers and takes away many of their collective bargaining rights. UPI/Brian Kersey
