Get Back! Park's Closed!

Abby Zimet

Six military veterans, including Lt. Dan Choi, handcuffed themselves to the White
House gates Tuesday to protest Obama's inaction on Don't Ask Don't
Tell. The best part: Police freaked out and closed Lafayette Park, thus
banning all media and tourists pushing baby strollers. So much
for the most transparent administration in history. Video here.


FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
