AIPAC Protest Rates TWO Videos!

Our local DC Antiwar Network initiated a March 12 protest against the annual American Israel Political Affairs Committee (AIPAC) conference. About 70 activists showed up chanting over and over again our protest theme: CONGRESS, STAND UP TO AIPAC. Hopefully all those representatives -- as well as Barak Obama and Hillary Clinton who had meet and greet rooms -- heard us as they entered the "Congress" entrance. One video features photos of an AIPACer who got a woman protester in a headlock, resulting in the arrest of both. The other features more peaceful aspects of the protest. Click here for the first of five longer videos by William Hughes.
Click here for photos of that event and the March 17th March on the Pentagon. Coincidentally St. Patrick's day. I was busy selling buttons and never made it past Constitution Avenue. The march is over but My Buttons are still doing their work!

Our group also did a March 14 Iran Forum with several excellent speakers. See this one as a first of several William Hughes videos of that night.
