According to reports the protest organized to deflect attention from WWII vets crashing the barricades (the guys are in their 80s) was organized by a group called “Good Jobs Nation” funded by the Teamsters, United Farm Workers, and other unions.
Can someone tell me why barricades have been erected around monuments which are made out of granite which require no staff?

The same scene was reenacted again today as two Honor Flights from Missouri and Chicago arrived in prearranged visits. These Honor Flights were met by hundreds of ordinary citizens and about a dozen members of Congress, who once again crashed the barricades to let the veterans into the WW2 Memorial.
After about an hour, about 20 protesters arrived on the scene chanting “Boehner, get us back to work” and claiming they were federal employees furloughed because of the shutdown.
In the video below these protesters were marching towards the press gaggle and I was asking them to show their federal IDs to prove they were in fact federal workers. No one wore their federal ID and none would provide it to prove their claim.
