Watch: Activists Target Pelosi with Sit-Ins in S.F. and D.C. Over ENDA
UPDATE - 5:45 pm - DC Agenda reports that U.S. Capitol police arrived at Pelosi's offices, entered for a few moments to chants of "Equal rights now! ENDA starts here!" and exited, without arresting anyone.
Activists from GetEQUAL in San Francisco and Washington D.C. staged sit-ins at Nancy Pelosi's offices in San Francisco and Washington D.C. to draw attention to the need for the passage of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), GetEQUAL co-founder Kip Williams announced in a YouTube video this afternoon.
A 'blog swarm' targeting Pelosi's office, in which we participated, also took place today.
The activists are live-tweetings from the sit-ins at hashtag #getenda. They say they don't plan to leave the offices until ENDA comes to a vote later this month or they get arrested.
Robin McGehee, the other co-founder of GetEQUAL was arrested this afternoon outside the White House at the action taken by Lt. Dan Choi and Captain Jim Pietrangelo.
