Members of Get Equal are arrested at Capitol Building protest

On Wednesday, July 28, eight individuals associated with Get Equal were arrested for “Unlawful Conduct — Demonstrating in the Capitol Building,” according to the U.S. Capitol Police, following a protest in which the eight stood silent with signs serving as a “reminder” to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D) that she had promised a vote on the Employment Non-Discrimination Act this year. The eight then, as the Rotunda was being cleared of visitors and media, sat down, began pounding the marble floor and called for a vote on ENDA. Among those arrested was Zack Rosen, of the blog The New Gay.
