Protesting Rhode Island Budget Cuts

PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- More than 2,000 protesters Tuesday evening were surrounding the State House in a protest called "Circle of Hope." They are holding glow sticks to protest $24 million in cuts that might leave people with development disabilities homeless or without rides to their programs.
Organizers had expected 3,000 in an event that was to last until 8 p.m., and as of early evening people were still pouring in.
