8.7.13 Mike Harrington, a Vietnam War veteran with Veterans for Peace, was arrested over the noon hour for participating in the Solidarity Sing Along. Capitol Police took a large white Veterans for Peace flag from Harrington's hands and rolled it up. They handcuffed Harrington and marched him out of the rotunda, followed by his fellow Veterans for Peace activists and a crowd of outraged supporters.
