24 Activists Arrested at Senator Norm Coleman's Office.
April 3, 2007
All of the individuals arrested were demanding that the Senator follow the wishes of the people of Minnesota. A clear majority no longer support the war or occupation of Iraq, as Senator Coleman continues to support the Bush administration's 'surge'.
At 5 PM near Coleman's office, University Avenue was blocked in an action organized by the Anti-War Committee, They lined up barrels, cones and barricades to shut down all four lanes of the major street. All traffic was stopped for 30 minutes. The action symbolized the hardships of daily life in Iraq.
Later, 12 others who sat in Senator Norm Coleman's St. Paul office part of the afternoon, were arrested and cited for trespassing when they refused to leave at 7 PM. The action was organized by the Twin Cities Peace Campaign and was part of the nine week Occupation Project.
