REPORTS FROM OUR MEMBERS
On Saturday, March 20th, 2010, thousands rallied and marched in Washington, D.C. against the wars and occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan. We protested drone bombings and the spread of the global war of terror by the US empire! One MDS member after speaking on stage with others, lit up a flag replica, and the crowd cheered them on. By the end of the march, they were arrested for sitting in front of the White House on the sidewalk exercising their first amendment right to assemble peaceably. The MDS member was in jail for 50 hours, and will go to trial in June in order to fight the system that wrongfully incarcerates not only peaceful protesters, but anyone who stands in the way of the fascist state.
