The "Reclaim Wisconsin" rally marked one year since Gov. Scott Walker's bill stripping collective bargaining rights from public employees was passed in the state legislature.
This event occurred in Madison, Wisconsin at the State Capitol on the State Street side. Estimates ranged from 35,000 to 65,000. All were peaceful and no arrests were made.
