Twenty arrested in late-night ‘Add the Words’ demonstration at Capitol

Twenty people were arrested by Idaho State Police and charged with trespassing late last night after refusing to leave the state Capitol in an "Add the Words" demonstration, including a number who had been arrested on similar charges in earlier demonstrations this year. The protesters want the state to add the words "sexual orientation" and "gender identity" to the Idaho Human Rights Act's anti-discrimination protections; the bill hasn't gotten a hearing.
