Video: At a White House Gate, Veterans Demand "Beer Summit" with President Obama

By BillyClub - Posted on 09 October 2011

  On Sunday, Oct. 9, 2011, at noon, Veterans for Peace, Military Families Speak Out, and members of the military, demanded at a White House gate, a "beer summit" with President Barack Obama. Col. Ann Wright wanted to know why the president can meet with "warmongers," and not the veterans "who are for peace?" The request for a beer summit was denied! There was one arrest in front of the White House at this demonstration. This action is part of the ongoing "October 2011" Movement (Occupy Washington). Its base is located at "Freedom Plaza" in Washington, DC.
