V Makes A Mark In DC

Posted on Tuesday, November 21 at 09:59 by Diogenes
On November 6, 2006, a lone man in a V mask and clothing visited security checkpoints at the White House, the main Treasury Building, the Department of Justice and the Capitol, to deliver a letter and the Petitions for Redress. A short videotape of the encounters has made its way around the Internet, including links from sites such as MySpace.com. The letter informed the leaders of the Executive and Legislative branches of the federal government that up to 100 people in “V” masks and clothing would gather in silent vigil at those locations on November 14th to await a response to the Petitions for Redress. True to his word, at 11:00 A.M. on Tuesday, November 14, 2006, nearly 100 men and women in V masks and clothing could be seen walking along different streets in downtown Washington, DC, all heading to Lafayette Park across Pennsylvania Avenue from the White House. By high noon, the Vs were facing the White House, in formation. Some were holding a 40-foot by 25-foot banner that read, Dear Government; No Answers, No Taxes. Four were holding smaller signs that read Obey The Constitution - The Right To Petition. They waited about one hour for a representative of President Bush to approach them with some response to the Petitions. As has been his wont, the President did not respond. http://www.givemeliberty.org/RTP2/UPDATES/Update2006-11-18.htm
