Protesters at the various campuses in the University of Wisconsin system say they want the state to restore millions of dollars in budget cuts. 

Students, faculty, and staff say they support the system-wide tuition freeze, but the lack of funding is impacting everyone.  They say state funding for the system has been frozen or cut for the last six years.  Instructors say their morale is bad because class sizes and workloads are growing, while salaries stay the same.  Those voicing their support for the system Wednesday are calling for lawmakers to start by covering the money lost when tuitions are frozen.
