by Andrew Green

CHICAGO (WKZO) — A group of marchers left Chicago on Tuesday to talk 160 miles to Battle Creek as part of a protest against the use of drones by the military.

For the Harbor Country News

A group of people, including religious leaders in Berrien County, are taking to the road from Chicago to Battle Creek to protest what they see as a menace from the sky.

The participants will walk from Chicago to Battle Creek on June 3-14 to protest the use of armed drones in the “War on Terror,” that they say kill innocent civilians, create more enemies and undermine America’s standing in the world.

June 12, 2014

It was heartbreaking this morning to hear Mohammed Al Dulaimy, an Iraqi reporter for McClatchy news, speak on Democracy Now. As Mosul, a city of two million, falls to ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria), while Iraqi soldiers drop their arms and flee, we hear that the “militants” are now heading toward Baghdad. “Sunni Islamic rebels” have seized Tikrit and Iraqi Kurds have taken Kirkuk.

Force Protection Alpha in Effect

Our purposes were disjointed…in that we were at Creech in response to a clear and present danger presented by the murderous crimes of Squadron 17 somewhere in the depth of this desert outpost. The official and ostensible law enforcement squad, on the other hand, was there in response to the threat that a few unarmed citizens might step across an arbitrary and ever shifting line on the pavement.
