Jul 14, 2017 by Rik Bokelman

Eleven interfaith protesters, including the Rev. William Barber II, were arrested outside Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s office in Washington while protesting Medicaid cuts in the GOP’s revised healthcare bill, reports ReligionNews.com. 

The group was warned three times to stop protesting. Capitol Police then closed off the hallway and arrested any remaining protesters about 20 minutes later.

About 50 protesters gathered Thursday (July 13) for the Capitol Hill rally, before marching to a Senate office building steps from the Capitol.
