On the 12th of September, DC area antiwar activists held the first “Funk the War” in years. This time around, with rain coming down and a smaller group than the big 2008-2010 events, a new tactic was needed. At first, the event was held outside Union Station, cops were told it was only a dance party, not a protest. After nearly 40 minutes, the entire party was moved to the top of the Metro escalators inside Union Station’s roofed over but open air section. A feint towards the doors of the inner building reminded cops that they were getting off easy, and they took no action to disrupt the dancers.
