Protest at Pelosi’s

Dawn does not often break over House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s home on Broadway without anti-war protesters outside. Last month Pelosi denounced some of them as “nuts” and told them, “Get away from my house.” She and her staff have refused to meet with the protesters. Some nearby residents have complained about the disruption, but the protesters say most people are supportive.

Nearby, on the Lyon Street steps, anti-war protesters also camped outside Senator Dianne Feinstein’s new home. Feinstein held a meeting at the encampment of tents pitched on her front terrace on August 21. After the meeting, the group agreed to end their protest outside her home.
