Police Pepper-Spray Protesters at the Air&Space Museum

Posted on 08 October 2011

At a demonstration by the  October 2011 Movement at the National Air & Space Museum, Smithsonian Protection Services security officers pepper sprayed protesters as soon as they entered the museum. They pepper-sprayed a young woman from Woodlawn, VA who is not part of the protest.

Demonstrators were protesting the drone exhibit at the museum, which represents the glorification of extra-judicial executions and the military industrial complex at a public institution.

The police closed the museum and have been telling the public that the building was closed due to a bomb threat.
