Human and Equal Rights Organizers (H.E.R.O.) followed in the footsteps of GetEqual on Monday and staged a sit in at the Phoenix offices of Sen. John McCian. The group called on the mavericky old dude to stand by his 2006 statement where he said he would follow the recommendation of military leaders regarding repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" (DADT). McCain has since reversed his position on repeal saying the current system is "working just fine."
The protesters told McCain's staff and local police that they refused to leave until Sen. McCain spoke to them personally, which did not happen. The activists were arrested and as this video shows, the protest was peaceful, with all parties behaving in a respectful manner.
