Over 50 Anti-Torture Activists Arrested at White House Protest
On Thursday, April 30, 2009, in a massive act of non-violent "Civil Resistance" over 50 activists were arrested at a protest action in front of the White House. The protesters refused to move from the sidewalk when ordered to so by the police. The activists were demanding that the administration of President Barack Obama uphold the supremacy of the Law and investigate and prosecute wrongdoers in the Bush-Cheney Gang responsible for "acts of torture." The demonstration was sponsored by the "Witness Against Torture" group. It also charged that many of the most egregious torture policies carried out by the Bush-Cheney Gang "remain in place" For the latest details on "Witness Against Torture," its purpose, and the exact number of protesters arrested at the event, along with the charges placed against the defendants, etc., see:
