My friends were the ones in jail . . .

Will Hopkins laughing as he is arrested outside the White House

Bruce Gagnon of VFP writes in his blog here about the arrests of protesters in Washington, D.C. on Thursday, December 16.

As Will wrote in a recent e-mail: "if President Obama had chanced a quick glance out the window, he would have seen me, and a hundred and thirty of my friends from Veterans for Peace getting arrested. It was the largest mass arrest of veterans in recent history, and notables like Daniel Ellsberg, Chris Hedges, and Ray McGovern were arrested alongside us. An estimated 100 of those arrested were veterans; members of Code Pink, Peace Action, and independents also chose to face arrest in protest of the wars."

Gotta love my favorite peace activists gettin' arrested n' stuff :)
