Noura Khouri of the AFSC, arrested at AIPAC
The dinner at the Oakland Marriott, one of 4 sold out venues in the Bay area hosted hundreds of AIPaC supporters that were unaware of the disturbance in the lobby.
Immediately after entering the lobby, the group was surrounded by security personnel. The group then inexplicably broke into song.
In addition to Noura Khouri,others arrested and taken away in handcuffs included
Valerie Ortiz, Santa Cruz,
Leslie Angeline, San Francisco,
Martha Hubert, San Francisco,
Gene St. Onge, Oakland
Janet Kobren, Oakland, and
Peter Tcherneff, Santa Rosa
More details and photos as they come available.
True to form, the charming folks at Stop AIPAC sent out a press release, immediately declaring victory over the mighty lobby.
It has been proposed that the seven currently in custody in Oakland be traded in a prisoner exchange for Gilad Shalit.
