Pouring Blood on the American Flag

The “St. Patrick’s Day four” (well three of them) came and spoke to my class today about an action that they did in 2003, days before the American “Shock and Awe” campaign began in Iraq. They poured 4 ounces of each of their blood inside of a U.S. military recruitment centre in New York State. They all were sentenced to federal prison for 4-8 months.

Their story is incredibly powerful- I was moved and inspired.

Read about their protest and their official statement HERE.
