On Valentine's Day, University of Wisconsin-Madison students filled the Wisconsin Capitol building to protest proposals by Republican Gov. Scott Walker that would reduce funding for higher education and decimate collective bargaining rights. The students carried heart-shaped valentine cards for Walker calling on him to support the university and stop attacking public employees.
