Overnight protest at the Capitol rotunda, in Olympia, Wash (protesting state budget cuts) - pics

Protestors wearing shirts that spell out "Cut Tax Loopholes," work a phone bank on the steps of the Capitol rotunda, in Olympia, Wash. , Thursday, April 7, 2011. Several dozen protestors stayed overnight in the Capitol, protesting state budget cuts to education and other services, and lobbying lawmakers to end tax breaks on certain industries and services.

Aaron Hayes, right, Thursday, April 7, 2011, about Hayes' request that the group remove sleeping bags and other items from the floor of the Capitol rotunda. The groups were protesting state budget cuts to education and other services, and lobbying lawmakers to end tax breaks on certain industries and services.
