Anti-Drone Demonstrators Return to Brighton
Demonstrators against the use of remote-controlled drone weapons of mass destruction returned to the 12 Corners in Brighton on Wednesday September 12 after a 3 week absence. "We took a week off after the Labor Day parade" according to organizers Rochester Against War. The large model drone was once again on display and protesters held several smaller replicas mounted on sticks.
This was the first demonstation since the start of classes at the schools across the street. Several students spoke with demonstrators and asked for more information. This action also drew a larger than usual number of hecklers some shouting "nuke them all."
More actions are planned at the same location on alternating Wednesdays, 5-6pm. The next one will be on September 26.
