AIDS activists picket Kerry’s home

Activists set up a mock Thanksgiving meal outside Senator John F. Kerry’s home in Boston to protest the possible inclusion of cuts to AIDS funding during ‘‘fiscal cliff’’ negotiations. The fiscal cliff is a package of tax cuts and spending increases scheduled to take effect Jan. 1, unless lawmakers agree and act on different measures. About 20 members of the AIDS Coalition To Unleash Power, or ACT UP, arranged a table and chairs outside Kerry’s Beacon Hill residence on Wednesday. Kerry spokeswoman Jodi Seth said later that the activists are ‘‘preaching to the converted,’’ and that Kerry wrote the Senate’s first global AIDS bill.
