Protesters disrupt Wis. governor's speech in Chicago
November 3, 2011 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- Occupy Chicago protesters disrupted Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker's speech Thursday to the Union League Club of Chicago.
Walker had been speaking for just a few minutes Thursday morning when dozens of protesters began shouting in a room where about 300 people had gathered for the event.
The protestors were supporting unions that oppose the Republican governor's efforts to curb collective bargaining rights for Wisconsin's public employees.
Walker is the target of a recall effort.
