Pro-union protesters tore down a tent belonging to the conservative organization Americans For Prosperity outside the state capitol building in Lansing, Michigan on Tuesday.

A video posted by the MacIver Institute claims to depict several protesters in hardhats tearing down the tent, followed by cheers and whoops from the crowd.

"Our tent was ripped down by union activists actually tearing it down with knives, with people inside it," Americans for Prosperity communications director Levi Russell told the Daily Caller.
