The Boston Globe reports that Worcester’s Rep. Jim McGovern and others were arrested at the Sudanese Embassy in Washington, DC, this morning for a Darfur protest. Both McGovern and his constituents have committed civil disobedience on the issue in recent years. (via WoMag)

Down at the White House, what seemed to be more than 100 disability activists risked arrest by handcuffing themselves to the fence while agitating for the Community Choice Act.

Update: 91 arrested.

DCist reports some Greenpeace activists were also arrested today.
