370 Arrested In Front Of White House

Posted by Frankie at 9/27/2005 01:38:00 AM

Anti-war mother Cindy Sheehan was among about 370 protesters who were arrested in front of the White House Monday. I would figure the media would have made a bigger deal of it than it did, 370 protester practicing civil disobedience right in front of the White House... I can't remember the last time that happened in those numbers. However, the media seemed to be stuck on PFC England and no bid contracts to rebuilt the Gulf Coast (not that its bad thing). Sheehan was the first arrested because evidently you are not allowed to sit in front of the White House without a protest permit. Not that the protesters intentions were not to get arrested, they ended up with a $50 fine and charged with demonstrating without a permit, a misdemeanor. What was funny to me is that Sheehan asked to meet with Bush, and the guards actually went to first check and see if Bush would; however, when guards returned with a "No," the civil disobedience protest started.
