    Hundreds gather outside City Hall to protest Mayor Michael Nutter's 2015 budget proposal Thursday morning.

    Last year, protesters descended inside City Council chambers blowing whistles and yelling making it nearly impossible for Nutter to be heard. Due to the noise, last year's budget proposal address was postponed until later in the day.
