MADISON, Wis. - More than 100 people stood silently as a judge entered a plea of not guilty today for protesters arrested at the Wisconsin capitol.
A judge entered the plea on behalf of dozens of capitol singers arrested in the last month or so.
Capitol police began arresting protesters after a federal judge ruled groups of more than 20 people need a permit to gather in the building.
Protesters contest they have a constitutional right to gather peacefully in the capitol and do not need a permit.
