Protesters have now hit the Michigan capitol building in uproar over Gov. Rick Snyder’s budget and bills in the legislature which resulted in the arrest of 14 people. Some of those arrested were from the group BAMN – By Any Means Necessary- whose full name is the Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action, Integration, and Immigrant Rights and Fight for Equality By Any Means Necessary.

Within the video, the report tells of the 5 BAMN members arrested. However, a report by Detroit News confirms that number to be 14 total. All of them will be facing charges.

If you want to see some real riots, the Gov. should propose that they quit deducting union dues from Public Employee paychecks. I doubt however that the legislature has the guts to do that.

Yep I watched this protest live but cut off when the show was over. They’re not going to allow the protesters to get away with what they did in Wisconsin. Same this happened in Tennessee yesterday with 7 protesters being arrested.

“The right of all citizens to protest and assemble peacefully is sacred in the State of Tennessee. However, this General Assembly will not be intimidated by nomadic bands of professional agitators on spring break bent on disruption. We talk through our differences here. Tennessee is not Wisconsin.”
Tennessee Lt. Gov Ron Ramsey

Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action... and Fight for Equality

Sounds like an oxymoron.

Let me also add that while watching the Michigan protest on live video feed inside the Michigan Capitol building, I saw some of the younger protesters wearing red t-shirts with the Communist symbol in large yellow.
