Secret Service Shuts Down Fast and Furious Protest Outside White House

A group of young people protested against Operation Fast and Furious on the North Lawn of the White House this morning and were quickly shut down by the Secret Service due to a "suspicious package" forcing evacuation of the area. The package was later claimed by a tourist. More of the protesters' take from Campus Reform:

The Secret Service on Monday shutdown a student-protest calling for the firing of Attorney General Eric Holder saying they were acting on concerns over a 'a suspicious package' apparently left by a tourist on White House grounds.
Secret Service officials forced the approximately 50 student-activists, who organized the event over social media, to leave the area after the protest had attracted significant attention from members of the White House press corps. and major news outlets.
 
Maurice Lewis, a student at the University of California, Merced, who marched in the event told Campus Reform that the Secret Service had seemed on edge well before the "suspicious package" was discovered.
 
"Several agents seemed hostile to our march and seemed anxious for us to leave the area," said Lewis. "The discovery of the 'unidentified package' came just as the protest began to gain traction."
 

It should be noted that a woman did come to claim the "suspicious package," because she had left it there and it was in fact her property.
