DJ Ev Daddy and DJ Matt Graber returned from a trip to Washington, D.C. last weekend to demonstrate as a part of Occupy AIPAC. The American Israeli Public Affairs Committee, commonly referred to as the Israeli lobby, held their annual conference at the DC convention center and DJ Ev Daddy and DJ Matt Graber joined over 130 other organizations from across the country, including Occupy Wall Street, to protest the pandering of the US congress and President Barack Obama to the Israeli lobby group. The Real News reports, "Occupy AIPAC Opposes War and Sanctions Against Iran"; and Occupy AIPAC's website has everything related to the weekend, including several disruptions of the AIPAC convention.
