MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Most of the demonstrations against Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker ended a long time ago. But every weekday at noon, a few dozen people still gather inside the state Capitol and sing protest songs for an hour.

The 50 or so singers don't have a clear goal. They say they're upset about Walker's efforts to strip public workers of union rights. And even though the governor survived a recall election, they still keep coming.

Singer Brandon Barwick of Madison says the singers are fighting for better political leadership.

Democratic state Sen. Fred Risser supports their cause but says the singing won't prompt lawmakers to change their minds. Republican state Rep. Stephen Nass says it's long past time for the singers to stop disrupting activity in the Capitol.
