Congresswoman Gwen Moore Arrested in Darfur Protest

Congresswoman and Marquette alumna Gwen Moore has been arrested, along with several other members of the Congressional Black Caucus, at a protest that blocked the front entrance of the Sudanese Embassy in Washington today.

Moore’s explanation for her actions involved Marquette. According to the Associated Press:
She said she received a petition from Marquette University, her alma mater, with 4,500 signatures calling for the United States to help end genocide there.
We actually signed that petition, thinking it would do no harm, while doubting it would do any good. Perhaps it did some good.
