District of Columbia: AIDS Activists Arrested in Protest

December 3, 2007

Around 40 protesters were arrested Friday during a demonstration outside the White House ahead of World AIDS Day, said U.S. Park Police Lt. Scott Fear. The activists criticized the Bush administration's handling of the epidemic and called for an end to abstinence-only sex education requirements for U.S.-funded international HIV/AIDS programs. They also complained that the disease has largely been ignored in the District, which has the worst infection rate among major U.S. cities.
