Five opponents of the Iraq war were arrested in Newark yesterday after sitting on the floor for 40 minutes in the lobby of the building where U.S. Sens. Frank Lautenberg and Robert Menendez have offices.
The activists — all members of the anti-war New Jersey Occupation Project — last week had asked the senators, both Democrats, to sign a pledge to vote against a $100 billion spending measure that pays for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
