The Conservative Tribune reports, A sit-in by the NAACP at Sen. Jeff Sessions’ office in Mobile, Alabama, ended with six arrests Tuesday night. The activists had one demand, and it was a ridiculous one. They wanted Sessions to withdraw his nomination for U.S. attorney general. They said they wouldn’t leave Sessions’ office until he withdrew his nomination or they were arrested.

Six NAACP demonstrators were arrested after occupying the Mobile office of Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, calling for him to turn down his controversial nomination to become the next U.S. Attorney General.
More than a dozen protesters entered the office around 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, Benard Simelton, president of the Alabama State Conference of the NAACP, told the Daily News from Sessions’ office.
“Our objective is certainly to stop his nomination,” Simelton said, “but our objective is also to get out the word to people in power to stop it.”
NAACP President Cornell William Brooks was among those sitting in Sessions’ office, and said at 7:30 p.m. that he and his fellow protesters were about to be arrested after the building manager requested that they leave.
