[JURIST] Anti-war protestor and Gold Star Mother [Wikipedia backgrounder] Cindy Sheehan [Wikipedia profile] was arrested Monday while protesting outside the White House. Sheehan and dozens of other Iraq war protesters were taken into custody by police after they were warned three times that they were breaking the law by sitting on the sidewalk on Pennsylvania Avenue and failing to keep moving. The White House demonstration, billed as "non-violent direct action" [UPJ action alert] was organized at the end of three-day Wasshington campaign by United for Peace and Justice [advocacy website], a group urging members of Congress to work to end the war in Iraq and bring home the troops. A massive rally Saturday on the National Mall drew at least 100,000 protestors and is widely said to have been the largest anti-war protest in the US capital since Vietnam. AP has more.
