Organization: 

On Thursday, May 23rd, while President Obama speaks at the National Defense University about counterterrorism, drone strikes, and Guantanamo Bay, CODEPINK and other activists will hold a rally outside the premises. 

 

Say the organizers, "We will not sit back and let crimes be committed in our name in violation of basic human rights and international law."

 

They will meet by the entrance by 2nd and Q Streets SW, and ask that participants please wear orange.  RSVP here on Facebook.

 

The President's speech is set to begin at 2pm EDT.
