Protesters unfurl 'Arrest Bush & Cheney' banner at Nat'l Archives

Anti-war protesters hung a banner today at the National Archives calling for the arrest of President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney.

The 22-foot-long banner in red, white and black reads, "Defend Our Constitution - Arrest Bush / Cheney! - War Criminals!"

The protesters, perched on a ledge at the historic building in Washington, D.C., additionally claim to be on a hunger strike.

According to a press release, the five are military combat veterans from the anti-war group Veterans For Peace who intend to stay on the ledge and fast for a full day "in remembrance of those who have perished and those still suffering from the crimes of the Bush administration."

An Archives spokesperson had no comment when asked if authorities were planning to take action to stop the peaceful protest.

This video is from YouTube, broadcast September 23, 2008.
