Peace Activist Kathy Kelly Heads to Prison for Protesting U.S. Drone War




Peace activist Kathy Kelly is about to begin a three-month prison sentence for protesting the U.S. drone war at a military base in Missouri earlier this year. Kelly, along with another activist, was arrested after offering bread and an indictment against drone warfare. Kelly is the co-coordinator of Voices for Creative Nonviolence, a campaign to end U.S. military and economic warfare.

1. The use of drones to kill people is wrong, and can lead ONLY to much bigger

problems.

Want to alienate the entire world?

Want to piss off everybody?

Drone them...

6. Yes she does, she is an amazing woman, and I remember when the 'left' used to

support her efforts, same with Code Pink among others, who are still out there opposing crimes against humanity, which at one time was a popular thing on forums like this.

4. We tell the world we are killing the enemies of " Democracy " and " Freedom of Speech " with our

drones then imprison a citizen for exercising the same . What hypocrisy .

7. Joy of the New Year to Kathy Kelly in hopes of a new year without...

...U.S. drone murders
...the U.S. Forever War
...trillions of our tax dollars into the pockets of fat-cat military contractors
...transglobal corporate monsters running our government
...rampant police brutality and murder against the poor and especially the black
...rampant inequality, hopelessness, powerlessness and despair
and without
... 'TRADE SECRET' programming code--code that you and i are forbidden by law to review--in ALL the vote tabulation machines in the U.S.A., private code that is largely controlled by ONE, PRIVATE, FAR RIGHTWING-CONNECTED corporation (ES&S, which bought out Diebold) with NO AUDIT AT ALL in half the states in the U.S. and a miserably inadequate 1% audit in the other half.

We need many things to peacefully overcome the forces that are running this criminal enterprise that our state snd federal governments have become. We need awesome heroes like Kathy Kelly. And, among other things, we need to restore vote counting to the PUBLIC VENUE!

9. Drones are for COWARDS.

 

- Be they persons or countries. It takes the risk of injury or death out of the equation for the user and turns killing people into a fucking video game.

Period.
