More Than 200 American Anti-War Protesters Arrested

 

On Wednesday, in major cities all over the US protests were staged against the war and occupation of Iraq. The protests have netted more than 200 arrests already. The protests mark the 5th anniversary of the US led invasion of Iraq.

In San Francisco more then 100 protesters were arrested on Market Street in San Francisco's central business district. Another 32 were arrested in Washington trying to block the entrances to the IRS, another 30 were seized at a congressional office.

At Washington's National Mall around 100 protesters carries signs saying "The Endlessness Justifies the Meaninglessness" and "Stop Paying to Kill". Protesters chanted slogans such as "Bush and Cheney, leaders failed, Bush and Cheney belong in jail".

Get a permit, stay in your zone, keep it peaceful. Or, go to jail. I keep seeing people getting violent or unruly at protests, totally the wrong venue guys, lol.
If you keep me from getting into public building X, especially federal building X, you deserve to be arrested. What does some guy wanting to get into a facility have to do with your show?

Honestly, all this faux rebellion at completely inappropriate places like peaceful anti-war protests. All this heated language, yet the same people making all this stink are the same ones who actually vote for Ron Pauls and throw away their democratic contributions. Get realistic, get serious. If you're that passionate, if you want to be violent, challenge the government in the only way they understand, a military action. Otherwise, have a peaceful protest and express your dissent like hundreds of years of Americans have before you.

  Well..  
 
I have two problems with this, first with the protestors, violence has no place at a protest, it only serves to undermine your cause.

Secondly, protest/free-speech zones..when free-speech is restriced to certain places or times, it's no longer free-speech.

THIS WAS PEACEFUL... point out some violence they commited..

``Choices
Get a permit, stay in your zone, ``

land of the free = get a permit to protest... and the US is better than china how again...


``If you keep me from getting into public building X, especially federal building X, you deserve to be arrested. What does some guy wanting to get into a facility have to do with your show?``

actually in the case of the IRS, they have everything to do with it as its the taxes they take that fund the war... best way to protest war is to protest taxes...

the US back inthe 60`s or 70`s tried to have the band Radical Sheikh banned for anti-war music that told people to stop paying taxes..

if they weren`t violently blocking them i have no qualm with this at all. nor should you if you believe in in the right to free speech.

``Honestly, all this faux rebellion at completely inappropriate places like peaceful anti-war protests. All this heated language, yet the same people making all this stink are the same ones who actually vote for Ron Pauls and throw away their democratic contributions.``

as opposed to george bush`s and mccain`s... thisd faux rebellion was to show americans a theatratical glimpse of iraq. how is that inappropriate... did you eat a big bowl of propaganda this morning... ah i know you did.

``Get realistic, get serious. If you're that passionate, if you want to be violent, challenge the government in the only way they understand, a military action. Otherwise, have a peaceful protest and express your dissent like hundreds of years of Americans have before you.``

where were they anything but peacefulll... so let me get this straight... your in the military but don`t know shit about whats going on in iraq and afghanistan AND you don`t believe in the constituation... atleast when it doesn`t favor your PoV.

were you born troll or was that a process of evolution.

  is this violent...  
 
``Police in Boston arrested five people who blocked access to a military recruitment centre by lying on a sidewalk dressed as slain Iraqi civilians, an Iraqi mourner, a slain U.S. soldier and an American citizen in mourning.``

people laying down is violent...

``In New York, about 30 members of the "Granny Peace Brigade" gathered in Times Square, knitting in hand, to demand troops be brought home now.``

grannies knitting is violent...WTF.. did i miss a klan rally...lol

``Later, scores of noisy protesters blocked a busy intersection in Washington's business district. They picketed in front of the offices of The Washington Post and threw red paint on the building that houses the Examiner newspaper and Bechtel National Inc, which has handled major reconstruction projects in Iraq.``

alittle minor vandalizing, nothing got broke, but not aimless either... certianly not violent.

``One hour after the IRS standoff, several dozen protesters waved signs that read: "Stop Paying to Kill" and "How Much Longer?" as a ragtag brass band played. IRS employees were easily able to enter the building.``

how violent... they didn`t even stop IRS employees from entering the building they were protesting.... this is violent again how...

do you even know what violent means... or did you just not read my article or the source and just assume and comment anyways

  This is upsetting  
 
It happened here in Oregon as well. The protest started.. peacfully, than cops formed a huge cirlce aqround them. 2 swat teams came in and I left. I don't want to be mistaken for protesting when I'm just walking by. That sucks the most. I hate the cops when it comes to protesting, they are the enemy and see you as one.

  Ridiculous  
 
Protesters with attitude, lol.
Blocking a business is ILLEGAL and yes, if you do it you go to jail and get a free permenant record as well you should.
It's not hard to protest properly AND it keeps people on your side.

since your not up to speed and made the same assumation as japh i'll correct you:
"One hour after the IRS standoff, several dozen protesters waved signs that read: "Stop Paying to Kill" and "How Much Longer?" as a ragtag brass band played. IRS employees were easily able to enter the building."

IRS EMPLOYEES WERE EASILY ABLE TO GET IN... IE, they were not really be blocked in the sense that people seem to think. they weren't intimidating anyone, they weren't threatening anyone, they were forcing people away from the building they were PEACEFULLY PROTESTING....

sure they weren't in one of bush's designated freespeech zone, but since when does free speech need zones.

  Violence has no place in protests?  
 
Well peaceful protests are all well and good, but I'd bet my life Bush and Cheney don't give a crap about a bunch of people quietly holding signs in protest to their war. Cheney already said 'so' to the news that 65% of Americans thought the war was a total failure. Peaceful protests are all well and good, but the simple fact is that right now, they're not working.
 
  by: barryriley   03/20/2008 04:54 PM     
  Also  
 
Not only were people easily given access to the IRS building but this cannot be treated as a 'business' when it comes to protesting laws. The IRS is a public entity, the public own it and pay their hard earned cash into it. If they want to protest outside it, then they can.

"Get a permit, stay in your zone, keep it peaceful. Or, go to jail."

I've never been so angered by some of the bullshit spewed in your posts. People like you aree exactly what's wrong with the world today. If Bush and Cheney banned protesting and the vote altogether I'm sure you'd be right here saying "come on guys, they must know best, they're in power." What an absolute tool you are.

"...Bush's designated free speech zones..."

Protesting laws aren't Bush's fault. You've long been kept from within so many yards of a business or government workplace.
Why not step away a few feet and be able to continue?

It sounds to me like you're on a mission instead of reporting news.
Detachment much?

Sure, many of the protests aren't violent. Blocking access to government buildings, blocking traffic, etc. are nuisances for the general public. I have seen many successful and peaceful protests that involve none of the above.

Those who choose to engage in public "nuisance" behavior know the consequences. *shrug* I wouldn't be surprised if those arrested don't even care that they were arrested, because now their story and cause is getting more [and even international] attention.

say what... me detached... never...lol... only from the MAJORITY OF SOCIETY...


protesting at a distance... wow are american protests that sissified,... here were have hundreds of people protest against drug law every year by smoking weed right infront of the court... its entirely peaceful, hell even the cops are just spectators there.

hell we had a protest against the north american union plan that was made behind our backs that was done on parliment hill

freespeech has gotten awefully watered down in the US lately... just look at the free speech zone bush had for his campaigns.

ever seen a workers strike??? i'm guessing not they are legal AND THEY WILL try to stop you from entering a building.

@bobjones
"Sure, many of the protests aren't violent. Blocking access to government buildings, blocking traffic, etc. are nuisances for the general public. I have seen many successful and peaceful protests that involve none of the above. "

a visual nuisance at worst since they didn't actualyl block anyone from entering buildings, people passed to the building easily.

and as far as protests go this was a great protest... creative and non-violent, and show america a glimpse of the truth about iraq.

"Those who choose to engage in public "nuisance" behavior know the consequences. *shrug* I wouldn't be surprised if those arrested don't even care that they were arrested, because now their story and cause is getting more [and even international] attention."

indeed, but that doesn't mean the consequences are just. and yes they have gain much publicity over this... again making this a very sucessful protest... its not like it was localized at all, thsi is a protest litterally involving between 100000-350000 people. the number wasn't given in the source i used and thusly i couldn't use it... but that source was outdated (at the time only 120 had been arrested), as was the one in my newpapers this morning that cited 60 people arrested.

many protesters wore all white masks too look alike (like in the movie v for vendetta, or in pink floyd's "the wall"), other dressed as detainees with the famous black bag over their heads... other were dressed as dead iraq laying infront of buildings.

this was actually a rather impressive protest... from the sources i'm seen so far.

Erm, is that not the intention of protesting? To get attention?

"Sure, many of the protests aren't violent. Blocking access to government buildings, blocking traffic, etc. are nuisances for the general public."

Is a protest becoming a slight nuisance for the general public really as important as the needless deaths of hundreds of thousands of people.

"I have seen many successful and peaceful protests that involve none of the above."

This isn't the first anti Iraq war protest that's taken place. There have been so many before this one, peaceful ones that did nothing. So I think we can safely assume that peaceful protesting in a "free speech allowed zone" is not going to work. This isn't some small scale pissy little hippie protest. Countless studies have shown that the majority of Americans are against the war. Cheney has already stated that he doesn't care about the public opnion, or how it is against his and the president's actions. Therefore the country is no longer being run democratically. Is it really still time for law abiding peaceful protests?

Lol, where do you find that they were easily able to
get in? It doesn't site that iin your story I'm
wondering if you just made this up?? They were
obviously causing a public disturbance by blocking
the enterance,after all, iit does say that in your story
right??

Also, anti war protestor numbers were really low this
year....wonder why

So you're suggesting people drop their lives and run out of the houses to create as much anarchy as possible because the government didn't drop everything and do what you want?

Grow up, Barry. Hate the war or not, chaos isn't the answer.

Your choices are:
1. Peaceful protest
2. New election cycle
3. STFU

Pick one. Here's a pen.

please read the source... its in the very first paragraph... its truely said that i have to point things like this out in repeatition simply be you and othwer refuse to read to source... quit reading what you waht to read into everything you read and read whats actually there.

1 tenth to a third of a million in a single days worth of protest is low... what the hell???

well maybe if we had another REAL woodstock you'd see maybe millions gathering together in protest through music... unfortunately people are complacent in general... this is sadly a growing trend, and is part of the problem.


CAN WE ALL PLEASE READ THIS AS I HATE REPEATING MYSELF TO THE WILLFULLY IGNORANT:

they were NOT blocking in the sense of barring people entry, they were blocking in the form of standing between the people and the building in a show of protest, WHILE ALLOWING THEM BY into the building.... COMPLETELY PEACEFUL,,, COMPLETELY LEGAL... or atleast it used to be legal.

Definitely not peaceful. If someone threw red paint on my building I'd want them beaten with nightsticks and tied up with razorwire.
Protest all you want but please, don't bring private property destruction into it. It costs the real people (average joes) real money and does nothing to further your cause.


And on a humorous note, one of the protesters was named "Shirley Weiner".

Geesh. I just noticed that your article links the source to PAGE 2 of a two page article. Here's the link to the entire article where, in the first paragraph, it states that they actually DID attempt to block the entrance:

And why isn't chaos an option, if not "the answer?" Clearly the powers that be have manipulated civility to make people complacent, and clearly Americans still have the means to cause chaos. Thusly, it's certainly an option, more and more as Washington denies the will of the people.

yeah it might cost SOME money to clean up... but you can pay to fix what the US has done in iraq, and i a nothing was broke... and paint is easy to clean off (i've done it for a living, i know first hand).

Yeah, it'd be a damn shame if people voiced their opinions or voted for who they thought was the best instead of who the TV said would win.

It really kills my spirits to see people voting like they have money on the election. "Gee, the TV said Obama / Hillary / McCain is winning, so he's got my vote"

It's pretty obvious that we're missing out on good leadership by electing the same scum into office every four years.

You lost all credibility with this:

As for reading the source, I did. Page 1 is where you are told that they were indeed blocking intersections and buildings. Page 2 is where you linked in your source.

Page 2 is NOT the entire article any more than your crazed rambling is entirely legible. I imagine you with wild eyes, heavily breathing and tensing every muscle in your body as you typed that, even coming to the point of barely being able to form a thought toward the end as evident in your loss of finger control in the final sentences. It's sad, really that you should hate so much. In my book that makes you no different than those you're looking to oppose.

And @ all that say "Lets kill some kids over here to end the war!"
Sure, more killing is always a great idea. Go get your gun and get started.
Just make sure you call me first. Here's my number.
202-646-3323

If I answer and say something like "Homeland Security" just ignore that. I'm only trying to throw off the people that are microwaving messages into my head. Tell me a time and a place and we'll really knock some heads.

good thing i've been holding back then on what i'd really like to say...lol

yeah shame you were inconvienced so much to click back a page... such a shame...

deal with it its a two page source i was using info from both sources. and yet you still hang on to void meaning of "blocked" the way into the building wasn't forcable blocked, people were free to pass

in my opinion you a ****ing idoit (mods feel free to censor this if you feel it necessary), i've corrected you about a half dozen times and still you sit there spouting off about your clearly wrong intrepretation of want the blocking of the building actually is...

and yes i am getting very pissed off with you... i absolutely hate beyond all doubt stupidity and willful ignorance... you are full of both as much as bush has bullshit...

please either ACTUALLY read the source and which point i expect not to see you complain about blocking entrance into the building as if they were actually trying... OR just shut up, i'm sick or correcting your ignorant ass and my foot is out of reach.

If the source says "Blocking" and you say "Allowing" then it's not really a source, is it?

Why not just cite one sentence of the article instead of the entire second page? Maybe just a word?

This is a news site, where news - and not opinions or loose interpretations, are posted subsequently commented by interested parties.

If you're interested in posting opinion-news (Owpienews?) you'd have better results with a blog.

are you an idoit or a troll i can't tell anymore... you are either one of the stupidest people i've ever talked to or just a run of the mill troll.

here let me try politely, smarten the **** up or shut the **** up.... if that not polite enough for you ... well you'll just have to figure that one out on your own... don't worry i wont be holding my breath.

its pretty damn sad that every single post (almost) i've made on this thread is pointing out the exact same fact that you keep ignoring.

i'd almost like to consider asking the mods to clear all the comments to see if a this thread could resume without the persistant and willfull ignorance of certian people, since even as much as i hate your ignorance i would not ask that you be banned for it, even as disturbingly persistant as it is... this will be no less than 5 time i've address the same thing to you the last 4 times of which you ingored it... this time i removed all the parts that might confuse you and left and i'll post it again just incase you missed it and in bold incasee you have problems with your sight:

"IRS EMPLOYEES WERE EASILY ABLE TO ENTER THE BUILDING"

i hope theres no confusion about the building being block now.

citing the entire second page?... what tyou mean as source... or you mean those tid bits from the second page which clearly point out non-violence.

you been eatting paint chips for breakfast again?

I think I'm beginning to understand your frustration. You keep pointing to a sentence buried in the article that says "IRS employees were able to enter the building", but as mentioned before this is on the second page.

That's like saying "Everyone is happy. See? It's here in the back of the book."
when you failed to read the entire thing.

The article in it's entirety is here:
http://uk.reuters.com/...

Click it. Read it.
Paragraph 1 AND 2 state that they actively tried to block access.
Are you saying you can't find it?

Here's the quote:
<quote from source>
More than 200 people were arrested across the United States on Wednesday as protesters marking the fifth anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Iraq obstructed downtown traffic and tried to block access to government offices.

There were 32 arrests in Washington after demonstrators attempted to block entrances to the Internal Revenue Service, while 30 others were arrested outside a congressional office building, police said.
</end quote>

Sounds like it was blocked to me, until hours later and the police cleared the troublemakers away and then we see your oft cited quote about them not blocking the entrance.

"Erm, is that not the intention of protesting? To get attention?"

yes - I never questioned the success of the protest. just responding to what I picked up as an implied notion that those arrested are victims (because IMO they are not victims, per se).

"Is a protest becoming a slight nuisance for the general public really as important as the needless deaths of hundreds of thousands of people."

First off, I am totally fine with peaceful protests and I am totally fine with people getting arrested if they break the law while protesting. Secondly, where on earth did I compare the two? What you suggested was a horrible false dichotomy, Barry. It's not like I have to make a choice between allowing people to lie in the road or get 1000s of people killed. That's like if I were to ponder what's more important: 1000s of people dying in Iraq or allowing me legally to order HAVOC666 a prostitute? (NO I WILL NOT DO THAT! :P )

"Is it really still time for law abiding peaceful protests?"

Yes - I think it's always time for those.

yeah it might cost SOME money to clean up... but you can pay to fix what the US has done in iraq, and i a nothing was broke... and paint is easy to clean off (i've done it for a living, i know first hand).

<quote>who in the bloody hell doyu ou think posted the article... BEGONE TROLL
</quote>

I'm aware that you posted this article, which is why I'm even more surprised about your complete dismissal of the first page. Click the link I supplied, which shows the entire article on one page for your convenience. Read the first 2 paragraphs.
They only had access after the police cleared them out, which is what is referenced on page two. Page 2 seems to be the only part of the article you read. Sad reporting to say the least.

<quote>of course that only if you don't take into account " IRS employees were easily able to enter the building."

Again, this is only on the second page and after the police cleared them out, as the reference article says on page one. :-/

<quote>you truely are a lost cause</quote>
Only if you're trying to beat me to death with a wacky ideal instead of report the news.
Just read the article before reporting next time.
~sigh.

  What ever happened to free speach?  
 
People have that right, or they did until the last 5 years.

let's not get overdramatic. Everyone still has free speech.

But people who block traffic or access to government buildings run the risk of being moved out of the way and/or arrested. Sounds simple/reasonable enough to me.
