[Wausau, Wisc...] Mining protesters stormed and vandalized a DNR facility in Wausau just hours after the conclusion of a "nonviolent" weekend training camp, according to documents obtained by the MacIver News Service through an open records request.

The Central Wisconsin Action Camp, which was held somewhere in the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest, concluded Monday morning, May 21st. About 70 people attended that training camp to learn aggressive, yet supposedly nonviolent, protest tactics to utilize against iron mining efforts in northern Wisconsin. Thistle Peterson, a known protester in Madison, was identified in newspaper reports as one of the organizers.
