What you will NOT see on the news! Actions at the White House Gates on 12/16/10--135 ARRESTED!

NOTE FROM ANITA***I am proud to know personally Ray McGovern, Medea Benjamin of Code Pink and many others that attended this protest yesterday at the White House gates. 135 LOVERS OF PEACE were arrested. They committed no crime. Only civil disobedience.

Four of the speakers at the Veterans for Peace-led antiwar demonstration at the White House on Thursday, Dec. 16, 2010, are activists, who have long advocated for the cause of Peace and for Social Justice issues. They are: Dr. Margaret Flowers, a champion of an Expanded Medicare for All Healthcare System; Ray McGovern, a former CIA analyst; Medea Benjamin, cofounder of CODEPINK; and, Brian Becker, National Coordinator of the ANSWER Coalition. All four were later arrested, in an act of "Civil Resistance," in front of the White House protesting the wars. To learn more about their arrests and the charges place against them, go to:
Mike Ferner, the President of the Veterans for Peace, introduced the four speakers.
