Eight Arrested In Nixon’s Office Protesting National Guard

From the CBS affiliate in St. Louis, KMOV:

90-year-old holocaust survivor among 8 arrested in downtown protest

ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) –At least eight people were arrested, including a 90-year-old political activist, following a march in downtown St. Louis Monday afternoon.  The marchers were protesting Governor Nixon’s order to activate the National Guard.

The protesters, who chanted "National Guard has got to," marched from Kiener Plaza to the Wainwright building at 3:00 p.m. Monday.  Governor Jay Nixon has an office in the building.

Eight arrests were made around 4:30.  All of the suspects were arrested for failure to disperse.  One of the people arrested was Hedy Epstein, a 90-year-old Holocaust survivor, who is now a political activist.

Ms. Epstein is a professional protester. Her favorite causes of late are the Palestinians and especially Hamas.

Crowds were seen trying to get into the building, but were held off by security personnel. There was also a "sit in" outside the building."

Get a job, you damn hippies!
