Day 3 of War Criminals Watch NYC Protests - 9/13/2011


By War Criminals Watch - Posted on 17 September 2011

Here in New York City, as the war criminals gathered, the protests continued.

7:30 am – About a dozen representatives of War Criminals Watch/World Can’t Wait, CodePink, Witness Against Torture, East Timor Action Network, NY War Resisters League and others gathered outside the Waldorf Astoria Hotel with banners, posters and leaflets while  Henry Kissinger gave the breakfast keynote to business executives gathered at the Rodman & Renshaw Global Investment China Track Conference.

5:00 pm – Called by War Criminals Watch/World Can’t Wait, CodePink and Witness Against Torture, a slightly larger group returned to the Waldorf Astoria Hotel while Dick Cheney addressed a small private dinner at the same conference.  We engaged as much as possible in conversations with passersby and drivers while holding up our posters and distributing Cheney war criminal bookmarks.  Though we didn't get most people to respond, the positive responses were more numerous than the negative towards our message.
