Earlier, on Monday at 5:30 p.m. Public Advocate volunteers posted signs protesting the visit of President Barack Obama at Wakefield High School where the president will be Tuesday morning.
Signs that stated "Mr. President, Stay Away From Our Kids" were posted along Leesburg Pike, Route 50 Arlington Boulevard, and several area schools in Northern Virginia. Photos showing the signs posted at some of the hundreds of locations are posted at the website publicadvocateusa.org (links below).
Two TV News Teams responded to counter protesters who objected to volunteers placing the signs on school property, volunteers who were posting dozens of signs and authorities who were called on the scene by school administrative staff.
In interviews to reporters on the scene, PA president Eugene Delgaudio stated the groups purpose in placing signs:
"We speak this afternoon on behalf of citizens and children who can not speak out against the President's plans by coming here to the location where the president is speaking.
We speak against the violation of federal law in using a federal agency to promote an agenda by instructing young children how to write letters to themselves about supporting the president's policies. And the president and his allies have bullied America's schools to pull this off, " said Eugene Delgaudio, president of Public Advocate.
