Rally organizers told protesters who would be willing to be arrested as an act of civil disobedience to move to the first floor of the Capitol. Those who wanted to leave were directed to the ground floor and the State Street entrance. Those determined to stay were prepared: Many had a lawyer’s phone number written in marker on their arms in case of arrest.
HuffPost's Amanda Terkel reports: A couple of minutes after 5:00 pm CT, protesters began chanting "Thank you cops!" -- most likely gratitude for the fact that police officers have reportedly not yet arrested anyone or made any significant moves to clear the Capitol.

Confusion persists at the Capitol, where officials are still refusing to open the doors and allow protesters inside the building. As of 2:45 p.m., the Capitol remained on lockdown, with only employees, officers and members of the media allowed inside. They are joined by the dozens of protesters who spent the night inside the rotunda, despite efforts to push them out the door.
