Senator Joe Lieberman to Meet with Peace Activists

Senator Joe Lieberman to Meet with Peace Activists on Thursday

CODE PINK and other activists will be meeting with Senator Joe Lieberman (D., Pentagon) on Thursday June 14th at 4:30 pm in his Washington D.C. office (706 Hart) to talk about Iran.

Sen. Lieberman recently spoke in support of using military force in Iran. Leslie Angeline, who recently returned from a Global Exchange trip to Iran, started a hunger strike after she heard Lieberman’s threats of an attack.

Activists went to Lieberman's office Tuesday with about 30 people and asked for a meeting. Wednesday they returned planning to spend the whole day there, and were told they could meet with the Senator on Thursday.
