On Dec. 10, 2012, social justice activists, many of them senior citizens associated with the MD/DC "Alliance for Retired Americans," staged a demonstration in front of the district office of Rep. Elijah Cummings (Dem-MD-7th), located at 910 Park Avenue, in mid-town Baltimore, MD. The protesters are concerned that the controversial deal, if any, to avert the so-called "fiscal cliff," will benefit the parasitical 2% Gang at the expense of the working class, the retirees and the poor. This kind of "candlelight" action also took place across the country in various other locations. This action was not in anyway meant to target Rep. Cummings. He's been a longtime champion of the people, Social Security and Medicare. In fact, Rep. Cummings, via his aide, was presented with a certificate of appreciation by the protesters.
