Anti-Drone Rally Held Despite Military Blockade

Common Dreams staff

Thousands of anti-drone protesters rallied in Pakistan Sunday, calling for an end to the deadly US strikes that have plagued the country with civilian causalities. As a large caravan and march lead by Pakistani politician Imran Khan headed for South Waziristan, site of countless drone attacks, Pakistan's military blocked roadways and access to the region, forcing the protesters to hold an impromptu rally outside of the tribal belt.
