The U.S. Park Police arrested 40 demonstrators outside the White House as they chanted for sweeping changes to the George W. Bush administration’s domestic and global AIDS policies.
The protesters were part of a larger rally in Lafayette Park just across Pennsylvania Avenue before they broke off and walked up to the perimeter fence on the north side of the White House and sat down in a line.
After three public warnings stating that their demonstration permit had been revoked and asking the crowd to disperse from an area cordoned off with police barricades and yellow tape, the protesters were arrested for disobeying an official order.
The arrestees, mostly college students, responded to the warnings by chanting, “Warning one, warning two, warning three, warning eight. We won’t leave ’til you cut the red tape,” before being cuffed with plastic ties, and carted away in Park Police wagons.
