Peace protesters arrested at Capitol, 2002

Police arrested about a dozen peace protesters after some blocked a road leading to the U. S. Capitol Building during a demonstration in October, 2002.

About 200 people had gathered for the rally as US lawmakers were about to vote on the invasion of Iraq, which followed about six months later.

I was already in Washington at the time to cover the DC Sniper attacks, which were commanding most of the national headlines that month.
