Guantanamo Protesters to Visit Cheney, Brennan Homes

US News

Anti-torture activists plan to visit the northern Virginia homes of CIA Director John Brennan and former Vice President Dick Cheney Saturday, where they hope to perform “citizen’s arrests” on men they consider war criminals.

The advocacy groups Witness Against Torture and Code Pink are organizing the protest, which organizers believe will draw between 30 and 60 people, some dressed in orange jumpsuits and black hoods in opposition to the Guantanamo Bay prison camp. Many activists are in town for the 13th anniversary of the detention camp’s 2002 opening, which the groups believe will bolster participation.

“We’re going to have a big set of handcuffs with us,” says Code Pink coordinator Alli McCracken, who was arrested in February 2013 protesting at Brennan’s Senate confirmation hearing.
