On Veteran's Day (Nov 11), Code Pink protested at the Kennedy Center against an exhibit "artwashing" the Iraq War. The Boeing-sponsored exhibit is of GW Bush's own paintings of the very veterans whom he sent to war and who came back wounded. Bush sent them to fight for lies about nonexistant WMD and nonexistant Saddam-al Quaeda ties.

On the 5th of November, one of a series of what are probably the UFCW's informational pickets came to a Safeway outlet in Montgomery County, MD.

Remove Trump started out in their usual spot

Donald Trump has in a week been booed first at the World Series, then at a UFC event in New York City. On Monday, Nov 4 he or his minions ensured this did not happen again at his Nationals ceremony in the Rose Garden. The "permanent" street closures kept protesters far away from the Rose Garden, and temporary closures forced multi-block detours as protesters probed the area for ways to get closer. Meanwhile a reported 11 members of the Washington Nationals refused to attend, in one high profile case for confirmed political reasons.
