This weekend marked a convergence of various protest groups into Washington, DC. The outrage over barricaded veterans' memorials brought them together in defense of our WWII veterans making a pilgrimage to their memorials. Truckers, bikers and veterans came together on Sunday to make sure that our nation's veterans could access these memorials and to protest the nonsensical barricading of such monuments.
Thousands more truckers rolled into the beltway and there were reports of at least 48 of them breaking away from the convoy in order to bobtail to the scene of two busloads of WWII veterans from Texas being held back from entering the Iwo Jima memorial on Saturday. They demonstrated an act of peaceful civil disobedience as they ran to their veteran brothers' aid in what is now being called, "Operation Free The Vets".
Citizens also stormed through the barricades at the Lincoln Memorial.
Sarah Palin went to the rally at the WWII memorial on Sunday. Reports cited an armored police vehicle also making an appearance.
The weekend's various protests seemed to culminate in a veterans' march with barricades in hand to the White House, returning the senseless impediments placed before the people. (see video) Hundreds, if not thousands of people participated and gathered in front of the White House. Possibly, the most tense moments of the weekend so far was when a small contingent of riot police assembled in a marching stance. The scene got verbally confrontational as protesters shouted, "This is a peaceful protest. Shame on you!"
The weekend is not over yet and many citizen journalist's reports continue to come in. It appears that We The People have finally been pushed into taking a stand over all the senseless closings blamed on a government shutdown that seems more like a theater production perpetuated by congress and this administration rather than a display of truth.
