On Monday, protesters are scheduled to gather outside the White House to demand President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder be held accountable for Operation Fast and Furious.
According to a release grassroots organizers sent to the press, the protest will start at approximately 10 a.m. outside the White House’s north lawn gates. The protest will last for about two hours.
“We want justice for the victims and families affected by this scandal,” event organizer Oliver Darcy said in the release. “We are protesting to let Barack Obama and AG Holder know that the truth must prevail. They should fully disclose all documents related to the case in order to bring closure to a dark moment in our country’s history. Anything less is a fraud of justice.”
The protest comes on the heels of Holder being held in criminal and civil contempt of Congress on Thursday. The House voted on a bipartisan basis to hold Holder in contempt.
