UPDATE @ 1:53 PM: Robin McGeechee from GetEqual has already been arrested. The police hauled her off in handcuffs after Dan and Jim handcuffed themselves to the fence. GetEqual promised direct action — and we’re getting direct action. As of now, Dan and Jim are still handcuffed.
As I noted below, Lt. Dan Choi spoke at the HRC/Kathy Griffin rally today. Then, he marched to the White House with Capt. Jim Pietrangelo and a crowd of several hundred. Kathy Griffin told Dan that she’d march with him, but didn’t. This is a t.v. show for her, but for Dan, it’s his life.
After delivering remarks, Dan and Capt. Pietrangelo handcuffed themselves to the fence in front of the White House. As of now, they are still there. Handcuffed to the fence in front of Barack Obama’s White House to protest the President’s failure to deliver on his promise to end DADT.
