As long as any house in the Wisconsin State Legislature remains in session, the Capitol must remain open to the public.

Although they have helped distrupt official proceedings in Madison, protesters have been in the Capitol Building for so long, they've set up their own society complete with a de-facto functioning government.

They create, post and enforce rules, organize sleeping arrangements, and coordinate food deliveries.

Liberal observers marvel at the beauty of it all, while others mockingly say it evokes more of a 'Lord of the Flies' vibe.

MacIver News Service's Bill Osmulski reports from Madison, Wisconsin.
