10,000 union supporters marched on the Michigan Capitol in Lansing Tuesday, protesting two of the state legislature's right-to-work bills (they both passed), which diminish the power of labor in the heavily unionized state.
Things got pretty heated outside the Capitol, especially between pro-union supporters and pro-right-to-work conservatives at the Koch-funded Americans for Prosperity tent, which bore the sign "Workplace Freedom." According to the Detroit Free Press, union protesters stormed the tent, shouting "Tear it down. Tear it down." According to some reports, AFP supporters had thrown pennies at them saying, "your work isn't worth these." [Warning: Video contains strong language.]
