Madison protest

Tensions continue to run high nationwide following the violent storming of the U.S. Capitol earlier this month, and ahead of President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration Wednesday. But in Madison, a planned mass demonstration largely failed to materialize for the second day in a row. 

Just a couple dozen people turned out Tuesday morning at the city's downtown McPike Park for what was billed as an "antifacist mutual aid event" to organize against "any coming far right uprisings."
