CODEPINK interrupts Zuckerberg Congressional hearing to say 'Stop Spying!'

On April 10th and 11th, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg faced Senate and House committees about Facebook's privacy breaches, failure to stop Russian election interference, and other security issues. Of course, CODEPINK was there to tell Zuckerberg to 'stop spying!'

It wouldn't be a major congressional hearing without Code Pink, the protest group that emerged in opposition to the Iraq war. Several Code Pink activists stood up about 2:15 p.m. ET, the original start time for the hearing with signs saying "protect our privacy," "stop corporate spying," and, with an ironic twist "like us on Facebook." Their images were captured by the legion of photographers clicking away here and then they took their seats peacefully.

The Capitol police took several precautions to prevent outbursts from protesters, confiscating signs reading “Stop Corporate Spying” and “Like us on facebook” from members of Code Pink, though they were allowed to keep their oversized, neon-colored eyeglasses.
