Gerry Condon was just arrested for throwing a cucumber.
Gerry Condon, President of the Veterans for Peace, was joining with other members of the Embassy Protection Collective outside the Venezuelan embassy trying to deliver food to us inside the embassy. When they were blocked by the violent opposition Gerry attempted to throw a cucumber to me in the window.
He was immediately surrounded by Secret Service police. He was thrown to the ground. His face was bloodied by three police who sat on him. He was recently taken away in a police wagon with someone who attempted to throw an orange.
Later in the evening electrical power to the embassy was turned off.
