Nine people were cited and released outside Senator Amy Klobuchar's office in a civil disobedience action late Tuesday afternoon and early evening. Klobuchar, a Democrat, has refused to speak out against a war funding bill even in the face of the recently released military video documenting the massacre of civilians, children and journalists in Iraq.
The large rally and civil disobedience comes after six were arrested at Al Franken's St. Paul office last Thursday. See video from Klobuchar's office below
Hundreds of protesters marched on Minneapolis' West Bank Saturday to mark the 7th anniversary of the current war in Iraq. After a youth feeder march gathered at pro-war Democratic Senator Amy Klobuchar's office at noon, 400-600 people amassed at Cedar and Washington Avenues, marching down Cedar, 20th and Riverside before ending at a concert and rally at Bedlam Theatre.
Twin Cities Indymedia and other movement mediamakers were there, and put together this short video of scenes from the protest and interviews with participants and passersby. (Download at Blip.tv)
