So, this weekend P.A.in.T. VP Nicole and I have been in D.C. for FCNL's Spring Lobby Weekend, hosted by my good friend Matt Southworth, who I met at the Veterans For Peace convention in August.
After 18 exhausting hours of traveling, we dropped our stuff off at Matt's and went straight back out into the streets to protest the war in Afghanistan on the 8th anniversary of the start of the Iraq War.
Here are some links to coverage of our protests:
Then yesterday, Nicole joined the Code Pinkers for the FREE BRADLEY MANNING rally at Quantico . . . . and she got on CNN!!!!
And then it came out that Col. Ann Wright and Pentagon Papers leaker Daniel Ellsberg (two heroes of mine) were victims of police brutality. Here's some awesome footage from No Excuse For That.org:
Makes me angry at a few of the policemen's conduct, happy to see a few of them helping Daniel Ellsberg to his feet, proud of my friends and allies, and grateful no-one on either side was seriously hurt.
