I’ve written up a summation of the protest here.

There is also a link to a video … when Lee took the time to speak to us. 

Barbara Lee danced around, in typical politician fashion, answering the question regarding military aid to Israel. But she is on record as supporting military aid. She needs to be asked this directly again and again, until she gives us an answer. Should we be encouraged that it seems that she is too ashamed to admit and defend her position for robust military aid to Israel? 

I have also put up some recent votes/statements that Lee has made - the good but mostly bad. It should be noted that the House passed unanimously a resolution supporting the current military campaign in Gaza. Though it was a voice vote, and we can’t even be sure Lee was in the House chamber at the time, she certainly has not said anything to say otherwise.
