At a little after twelve noon today Dr. Matt Hendrickson; an emergency room physician and six other protesters were arrested for trespassing and blocking the entrance to the CIGNA offices in Glendale, California. The action was part of a nationwide effort being made by Mobilize For Healthcare, who's advocates want a single payer medicare plan for everyone, with no denials to anyone.

For more about http://mobilizeforhealthcare.org/

The cities where other nonviolent actions were taken were,

Newark, NJ - 7
Columbus, OH - 0
San Francisco - 0
Rochester - 4
Los Angeles - 7
New York - 9
Virginia Beach - 1
Warwick, RI - 0
Sunrise, FL - 2
Seattle - 7

Thirty seven people were arrested in all. Seventy three people actually sat in nationally, but due to various police tactics in San Francisco, Columbus and Warwick 40 were not incarcerated, including Robert Darling who has been refused a bone marrow transplant to treat his cancer.

Robert Darling's story ....http://www.projo.com/video/?nvid=410234


Grigor Sarkisyan,the father of Nataline Sarkisyan appeared at the Glendale CIGNA offices and was told to leave or he would be arrested as well. He is a Mercedes technician and still carries his insurance through CIGNA. He produced his card and asked to see a CIGNA representative whereupon he was refused.
