Peace Activists Acquitted of "Crime" of Protesting, Go Straight Back to Duty of Protesting


Cindy Sheehan, Jonathan Gold, and James Veeder were acquitted yesterday on the charge of crossing a police line, or as NBC described it: "Cindy Sheehan cleared of DC protest charge."  When did protesting become a crime?

Elaine Brower and Matthis Chiroux were convicted of failure to obey a legal order, and Leflora Cunningham-Walsh was convicted of crossing a police line. They were given a $100 fine and may appeal.

Cindy immediately announced a protest of wars at the White House for 1 p.m. today.  Can you join her there today or in the coming days?
