On the 3ed of September, antiwar protesters returned to the White House hours after one had been arrested and others expelled from the Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing on the proposed Syria intervention.
Speakers called out the hypocrisy of the US for citing chemical warfare as grounds to intervene given the US history of such weapons. Napalm, Agent Orange, white phosporus, and depleted uranium were cited as examples of similar conduct by the United States.
One speaker from Syria pointed out that the US should practice democracy at home before seeking to export it! Speakers from Egypt and El Salvador also condemned the proposed “limited strikes” and called out Obama for trying to convince anyone that that is anything but the thin end of the wedge.
