California Protective Parents Association kindly gave us an update on the Mother's Day Event at the White House:

The Mother's Day vigil at the White House on May 9, 2010 was very successful!  It was inspiring to see so many mothers and supporters gathered - estimates are between 100 and 200 people. After the silent vigil and speak out, there was a wonderful parade down 17th Avenue and back.

Several television stations covered the event. Great clips made by attendees and others are below. CPPA is working on a mini-documentary. Several of us stayed for the rest of the month, going out nearly every day with the banner to stand vigil in front of the White House like the suffragists 100 years ago. Foreign press and tourists were quite interested in these horrendous United States human rights violations.  We also met with with Congressional staff regarding having Congressional hearings. We're planning another action at the White House, so stay tuned.
