10 days ago Veteran for Peace sent President Obama a letter requesting a meeting concerning the Wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. It said that if he would not meet with concerned men and women who had served their country about the tragedies these wars have brought upon the USA and the world then we would come to the White House on the 16th of December and deliver our concerns using civil disobedience if necessary, which it was. PLEASE CALL 202 225 3121
131 US Military Veterans, and concerned citizens disobeyed police and crossed barriers in front of the White House and stood, some attached by handcuffs and locks, demanding that the voice of PEACE SANITY be heard.

A retired police officer (who shot this video) I found that the only thing I could do was to join my brothers and sisters in this plea for peace and justice.
The following are several videos I was able to take with my camera leading up to our arrests.
I was in good company.
It is a sin that mainstream media did not give such an event even a mention as far as I know.
If it had been Glen Beck and the tea party people all the channels would have been there.
