Code Pink chases Rupert Murdoch into White House Corrospondant’s dinner
On April 30, Code Pink showed up outside the Hilton on Connecticut Ave to protest Obama’s continuing wars. One of the wealthy and powerful individuals attending the White House Corrospondant’s dinner inside was Rupert Murdoch of FOX News, who was ID’d by Code Pink and pursued to the safety of police lines near the door.
Code Pink was demanding that Obama break with most of the Bush-era policies he has continued, notably the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan but also bailing out big business while everyone else suffers.
Tickets to the event were reported to cost $250 apiece, a figure that would feed the entire population of CCNV for the cost of just a few of these high-priced plates.
I wonder if anybody managed to get inside and disrupt the event like what happened at that Obama fundraiser on the West Coast?
