STEVENS POINT (WAOW) -- Over 200 hundred protesters gathered at the Ramada Hotel in Stevens Point.

The Protesters walked to the Sundial on the campus of UW-Stevens Point.

Organizers say more people were waiting at the campus for those who walked the mile from the hotel to the university.

Many organizers made signs and created chants, such as "Walker is a weasel not a badger."

Protesters say the goal of the walk was to show opposition against the budget bill. Many say they're unhappy with provisions regarding no collective bargaining for many public employees.


The crowd of protesters that left the Ramada in Stevens Point were met by thousands at the Sundial on UWSP's campus.
