Hundreds of US military veterans gathered on the Capitol Mall in Washington, DC to demand that the country's war memorials are reopened.
The memorials have been temporarily closed as a result of the government shutdown.

washington conservative political commentator Sarah Palin and Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) arrived and spoke to the people gathered at the memorial. "This is the people's memorial," Palin said. "Our veterans should be above politics." Ward reported some truckers who have attempted to slow beltway traffic this weekend as a protest measure made their way down to the Tidal Basin area. Police blocked off roads in an attempt to keep streets clear.

Yahoo news runs a report but can't resist a typically snarky byline:"But does her tea party star power even matter to the GOP?"

Ted Cruz & Sarah Palin On Hand To Storm World War II Memorial Barricades

Thousands of people converged on the World War II Memorial on the National Mall on Sunday morning and tore down the barricades blocking it off, protesting the closure of the memorial during the federal government shutdown.
Beginning at about 9:30 a.m., Sens. Mike Lee, R-Utah, and Ted Cruz, R-Texas, as well as former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, were among the luminaries in a crowd that chanted “Tear down these walls!” and sang “God Bless America” as well as other patriotic songs as they entered the memorial, which has been closed since the government shutdown that began Oct. 1.
Tractor-trailers headed down 17th Street toward the Mall, blaring their horns. The Metropolitan Police Department blocked off the street, prompting the crowd to head up the street, shouting at the police to move their vehicles.
Palin said that closing the memorials was disgraceful, and that President Obama “could be here today, saying ‘Yes, we can tear down these barricades.”
Cruz said that President Obama was using veterans as political pawns in the shutdown. Lee shouted, “The sons and daughters of the United States of America are meant to live in liberty.”
By 11 a.m., the group had headed back to the memorial, and dozens congregated around World War II veterans, shaking their hands and thanking them for their service.
Later in the morning, veteran Mike Lauriente was accepting handshakes from demonstrators. He served in Sicily and French Morocco, and declared the memorial, which he was seeing for the first time, beautiful. “The spirit that I see here is overwhelming.”
