This is great. Another civil disobedience action in solidarity with the bombed people in Gaza. Folks who were appalled when Senator Dianne Feinstein voted to send $225 million to Israel in the middle of a massacre occupied her Los Angeles offices yesterday to protest. Four people were arrested. They’re still in jail.
The action was co-organized by a splendid coalition: Jewish Voice for Peace, American Muslims for Palestine, with support from Code Pink and Friends of Sabeel, North America.
I am told that these people are subject to the maximum bail figure: $5,000, for a misdemeanor: unlawful assembly/failure to disperse. Here are photos and videos:
Now here are some videos. First, here Feinstein’s state manager, Trevor Daley, orders folks to leave the office. Some say they ain’t going anywhere.
Here the interfaith leaders are arrested and put on the bus:
We’ll keep you posted as we learn more from this great action. Some Americans are not going to take human rights abuses sitting down.
