Code Pink, VFP Now Stalking Nancy Pelosi

From the local San Francisco CBS affiliate KCBS:

Peace Activists Get the Boot in SF

Friday, 23 March 2007

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (KCBS/AP)  — Just hours before the House is expected to vote on an Iraq funding bill, police rousted demonstrators camped outside Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Pacific Heights residence.

Gone are the tents, tables, banners, candles and flowers. All that remained early this morning of the so-called “Camp Pelosi” was a handful of people sleeping in vehicles.

“We’re going to set up camp again tomorrow, as soon as we check with the lawyers,” said a protester who identified himself with the group Veterans for Peace. “We’re pretty sure we’re right that they can’t just come, and they claim they had a neighbor complain.”

Most of the group has been present for a dozen or so days, opposing any additional funding for the war…

Gee, this is only being reported by the local TV station.

Can you imagine the media uproar if Cindy Sheehan had been booted out of Crawford?

From the San Francisco Chronicle:

Protesters continue vigil outside Pelosi’s S.F. home

(03-23) 12:57 PDT SAN FRANCISCO — A small group of protesters continued a vigil at Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s Pacific Heights home today, where members of an anti-war group have been posted for 12 days.

The protesters were demanding that Pelosi de-fund the Iraq war, and said they were disappointed with today’s vote in the House of Representatives, where members approved a $124 million spending bill that sets an Aug. 31, 2008, date for withdrawing all U.S. forces from Iraq.

Toby Blome, the lead organizer of "Camp Pelosi," said the group would hold a candlelight vigil tonight at sunset.

Blome said after today’s vote, the protesters, who are members of Code Pink: Women for Peace, will continue some sort of vigil at the House Speaker’s home.

"We’re not going away," she said.

"We want to remind her that Americans are watching her closely."

The group will hold another gathering Saturday at Alta Plaza Park nearby, she said, beginning at 5:30 p.m.

Of course we all know by now that Code Pink and the VFP are above the law.

Well, why not?

Stabbing our soldiers in the back is a noble cause.
