|Pax Christi, a religious group devoted to peace, turned out to swell the ranks of those demonstrating in front of the CIA headquarters Saturday morning.|
|An image of a foreign victim of drone warfare stood as a stern|
rebuke to those entering the headquarters on Saturday.
The centerpiece of the day was a demonstration at the white house that began at noon, drawing massive crowds (see coverage on RT and PressTV plus more photos):
|a simple equation: "DRONE STRIKES=WAR CRIMES"|
|A realistic Predator Drone model hovers ominously |
over the seat of executive power.
|"STOP KILLER DRONES"|
|A sea of yellow signs carrying |
stark messages for President Obama.
|"U.S. Drones Out of Africa, the Middle East, Asia & Everywhere."|
An oft-repeated theme of the day emphasized the imperialistic
overreach facilitated by drone warfare.
|"ISRAELI DRONES OUT OF PALESTINE (AND Everywhere)"|
|Police attempted to prevent demonstrators from exercising|
their constitutional rights. A heated exchange ensued.
|Authorities were powerless to stop demonstrators from |
breaching the barricade of yellow "caution" tape.
|Veterans for Peace|
|"DRONES KILL KIDS"|
|Rev. Graylan Hager of |
Plymouth United Congregational Church of Christ
|The march ended with a die-in, in which bloody-shrouded people|
lay in white masks to bring home the impact of civilian casualties
from drone warfare.
The Saturday demonstration was covered on PressTV, RT, and Liveleak.com. Simultaneously, demonstrators were making the anti-drone message heard in Boston.
