131 ARRESTED IN VFP ACTION @ WHITE HOUSE
131 people were arrested at the White House yesterday in an action to End The Wars, including the board executive committee of Veterans for Peace. It is estimated that 2/3rds of those arrested were veterans. Of those arrested a number of women from Code Pink were also arrested. Approximately 500 folks attended the rally. There were dozen of speakers including Daniel Ellsberg and Ray McGovern who were also arrested.
Thanks to all who supported or participated in this inspiring event and all who have provided footage of the peaceful rally to us, including Bill Hughes, David Swanson and Ellen Davidson

Code Pink and environmentalists were also there and arrested. I think it's disgraceful that you're trying to smear our brave veterans to further your agenda. Shame on you, OP!
