NEW YORK—Protesters held a demonstration outside the Queens office of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) on Jan. 14.
The activists, not representing any one organization, said their purpose was to persuade Ocasio-Cortez, also known as AOC, to introduce legislation in the House of Representatives to stop U.S. military involvement in Yemen.
Several of the protesters who participated were senior citizens, giving the illusion of a Woodstock reunion.
Alice Sturm Sutter has been participating in anti-war demonstrations since she was 20, during the Vietnam War era.
“I’m here because I’m so horrified that we’re still in the war attacking the people of Yemen,” Sutter told The Epoch Times.
Sutter sees the situation as a “humanitarian catastrophe.”
