Antiwar Protesters Disrupt Blinken and Austin Senate Hearings to Call for Ceasefire

HeadlineNov 01, 2023

In Washington, D.C., protesters on Tuesday repeatedly disrupted a Senate panel hearing for Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin. Their testimony was in support of President Biden’s request for $106 billion to fund the militaries of Ukraine, Israel and to militarize the U.S.-Mexico border. This is Ann Wright, former U.S. Army colonel and CodePink member.

Ann Wright: “Three thousand five hundred kids dead. Come on. I’m an Army colonel. I’m a former diplomat. I resigned on that War in Iraq that you talked about. That was a terrible thing. And what you’re doing right now in supporting Israel’s genocide of Gaza is a terrible thing, too. Stop the war! Ceasefire now!”
