“This is a sign of betrayal”

Police arrested numerous Vietnam veterans during a vigil at a war
memorial in New York City last night after the protesters refused to
adhere to a 10pm curfew.
The veterans had gathered at the Vietnam Memorial Plaza to protest
the 12th anniversary of the war in Afghanistan by reading out the names
of deceased US soldiers.
One video shows a man speaking about how veterans are committing
suicide. “This is a sign of betrayal….it’s important you know that your
government committed immense atrocities during the Vietnam war, we did
it every day,” he states.
After the Park Service rejected the group’s application to hold a
protest at the site, an all night vigil was planned. The group argued
that its first amendment rights superseded the 10pm curfew.
