Cindy Sheehan and 370 protestors arrested, some being held for hours on buses

Cindy Sheehan was arrested along with 370 other protestors today in front of the White House. The president would like to keep Cindy quiet and he clearly wasn't interested in reading the 200,000 letters asking him questions about the war. In the spirit of non-violent civil disobedience, Cindy and the others waited for answers until the police took them away.

We have heard from those arrested and they are being held in buses and vans at the Anacostia Park Police Station. They have been cuffed in these vehicles for hours and have been told that they should expect to be held there past midnight. Park Police officials have confirmed that there will be no efforts to transport any of these people once they are released. Those who are released after the subway has closed (around 11:45pm), will be stranded out there. Cabs can seldom be found at this part of the city.

Some of my volunteers have reached out to people in the DC area and organizations in town for the rally to see if arrangements can be made to pick up those who are released too late to get public transportation home.

The Park Police Station is located at 1901 Anacostia Drive SE, Washington, DC.

Everyone who was subjected to cruel and inhumane treatment by the Park Police should sue. If the DC police could be sued, so should the park police.
