There's been one rally after another at the state capitol-- but the biggest is expected to happen today.
More than 3,000 union workers and voters will protest nearly 40 budget bills.
The AFL-CIO demonstration today will be much like the AARP rally at the capitol on Tuesday, where more than a thousand seniors protested Governor Snyder's plan to tax pensions.
Seniors say they're already having a hard time living on fixed incomes.
Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore is firing people up for today's march on the capitol.
Moore sent out a letter Tuesday, urging people to take today off to go out and fight for middle class families.
The rally begins at noon.
Last night, a few dozen people staged a peaceful protest inside the state capitol building before police made them leave for the night.
