Flowers, McGovern, Benjamin and Becker: “End These Wars, Now!”
Four of the speakers at the Veterans for Peace-led antiwar demonstration at the White House on Thursday, Dec. 16, 2010, are activists, who have long advocated for the cause of Peace and for Social Justice issues. They are: Dr. Margaret Flowers, a champion of an Expanded Medicare for All Healthcare System; Ray McGovern, a former CIA analyst; Medea Benjamin, cofounder of CODEPINK; and, Brian Becker, National Coordinator of the ANSWER Coalition. All four were later arrested, in an act of “Civil Resistance,” in front of the White House protesting the wars.
