Naked ACT Up Activists Storm Boehner’s office

As World AIDS day approaches December 01,  7 nude protesters stormed House Majority Leader Rep. John Boehner’s (R-OH) office on Capitol Hill today, to protest cuts in the federal budget. See more.

“This from ACT UP’s website:

“As the US Congress and President begin negotiating on the so-called fiscal cliff, ACT UP/NY ACT UP/Philadelphia, Housing Works and Student Global AIDS Campaign plan to give Congress a pre-World AIDS Day Message that AIDS Budget Cuts Kill.

We’re asking you to to join us on our buses to Washington DC leaving early Tuesday morning, November 27th. We are assembling at 5am and leaving at 5:30am for the bus trip. We’re assembling at the LGBT Center, but to go you need to make a reservation.  We’ll arrive for a noon-time demo on Tuesday November 27th. The trip is free but donations are accepted. Click HERE to sign up”

The message was effectively delivered as the protestors were taken away in handcuffs.

    Good on the ACT UP people! I’m surprised the police didn’t rape, pillage, and burn things as they “did” their duty, lolol.
