Troops Come Home Now

by Rose Marie Berger | December 2005

Troops Come Home Now

Religious leaders—including UCC pastor Diane Baker, theologian Cornel West, Rabbi Arthur Waskow, Father Paul Mayer, and pentecostal pastor Osagyefo Sekou—were among the 370 people, including military families, who were arrested at the White House in September. Tens of thousands came to Washington, D.C., for the weekend events, marching under the message “Support the troops. Bring them home now.”
