THIRD PROTEST AT WHITE HOUSE FENCE
SIX MORE PROTESTERS ARRESTED AT THIRD PROTEST
Over 150 people turned out today for the third protest at the White House fence. The event, organized by GetEQUAL, Queer Rising and Talk About Equality, featured numerous speakers, including former governor and Democratic National Party chairman, Howard Dean, as well as Lt. Dan Choi and Maj. Jim Pietrangelo. Both Choi and Pietrangelo were previously arrested at the March and April demonstrations after chaining themselves to the White House fence.
As the today's rally speakers made their speeches, six civilian protesters, including Anne Tischer, Nora Camp, Alan Bounville, Natasha Dillon, Iana Dibona, and Mark Reed quietly handcuffed themselves to the White House gates.
