Rhode Island State House - Union Solidarity Demonstration

It was lame.

The Rent-A-Mob started filling the State House rotunda around 4:30. State workers and members from other unions were in attendance. It seemed like a large crowd because the rotunda is deceptively small and everyone was packed in.

I have to say that the event was very tame. The closest thing to violent imagery was the guy with the sword, and he was actually a nice guy. No Hitler stuff, no cross hairs, just union people showing up and doing as they are told.

After it was all over you can see people leaving the State House and crossing the street to the state administration building. You know, going back to their desks to collect their stuff and go home. It was after 5pm by then.
