Shortly before 9 PM on December 20, marchers from both Occupy camps
converged on the White House, demanding that President Obama veto the
NDAA is he wants to be re-elected. The NDAA is the Pentagon funding bill
with attached military indefinite detention clause.
This was the third day (second night action) of civil disobedience
against the NDAA in a row. This time around, 7 people were arrested
after refusing to leave the sidewalk in front of the White House.
At one point, police tried to induce the picketers marching in a circle
on the sidewalk to talk the sitting protesters out of civil disobedience, saying the CD would force them to close the sidewalk and
push away the picketers. This of course assumes the picket is deemed
more important than the civil disobedience, a highly unlikely state of
There was only one demand of the protest: that Obama veto the Pentagon
budget (NDAA) containing the military indefinite detention clause. One
speaker pointed out that the civil disobedience was a "use it or lose
it" proposition, as this same act after passage of the NDAA would risk a
lifetime in indefinite military detention if the President were simply
to declare that anyone opposing his war effort is to be considered
supporting AL-Qaeda. Former President Bush made repeated statements
coming close to exactly that-statements never repudiated by Obama.
