Today, some 75 people protested in front of Pentagon. Three of them threw blood on the Pentagon, and were arrested.

The activists are from the Atlantic Life Community, a gathering of faith-based activists who travel from all over the country to Washington, D.C. at the end of the year. There, they teach and learn about nonviolent civil disobedience, as well as about feeding the hungry and caring for the poor.

Last night in Washington D.C., I spoke to Liz McAlister. She was at the protest today. She also protested in front of the White House on Saturday and was arrested.
