Former CIA Ray McGovern Arrested At Peace Rally

Rebellion at White House victory for hope (video)

 Among those in Washington DC Thursday for civil disobedience, willing to be arrested for resisting war crimes, was Chris Hedges, American journalist, author and war correspondent specializing in American and Middle East politic and societies. Hedges addressed some five-hundred human rights defenders led by Veterans for Peace at the White House fence.

Hedges speech, about what hope is and is not, will be noted for years among other profound addresses in American history.
The official count of people arrested Thursday at the White House in an action to end the Long War is 131 according to Veterans of Peace. The arrested included board executive committee of Veterans for Peace.

Approximately 2/3rds of those arrested were veterans.

Also arrested were a number of women from Code Pink.

Dozens of speakers including Daniel Ellsberg and Ray McGovern were also arrested.

Hedges began his empowering and motivating addresses saying, "Hope will only come now when we physically defy the violence of the state."

Here in America we are descended in blood and in spirit from revolutionaries and rebels-- men and women who dared to dissent from accepted doctrine. As their heirs, may we never confuse honest dissent with disloyal subversion. Dwight D. Eisenhower

DON LEMON: You really think we --- and I'll say we, I'm a journalist --- you really think we have it wrong and that he [Assange] is actually not a pariah and we should be praising him and following his lead rather than calling him a pariah?

RAY MCGOVERN:Yeah, actually, with all due respect, I think you should be following his example. Seek out the secrets. Find out why it is that my tax-payer money is going to fund trafficked young boys performing dances in women's clothing before the Afghan security forces who we are recruiting to take over after we leave. Take a look at the documents and see the abhorrent activities that our government has endorsed or done through its contractors. And then tell me you don't think the Americans can handle that. Well I think they can handle it. But they can't handle it if they don't have it.
