Civil Resistance at White House Led by Veterans

WASHINGTON - Military veterans will lead a nonviolent act of civil resistance at the White House Thursday, Dec. 16, at 10:00 a.m. to protest the ongoing U.S. wars and occupations.

Among the scheduled participants: Daniel Ellsberg, who leaked the Pentagon Papers; Mike Ferner, Veterans For Peace national president; Leah Bolger, Veterans For Peace vice president and retired Navy commander; Ray McGovern, retired CIA official; Coleen Rowley, FBI whistleblower; and Chris Hedges, author and former New York Times war correspondent.
