OUR STORIES | Veterans hold anti-drone rally in Cedar-Riverside


Veterans for Peace, an organization that works to educate Americans on alternatives to war and the cost of war, held an anti-drone protest in the Cedar Riverside neighborhood in Minneapolis in late March.

In this video, two members of Veterans for Peace talk about the purpose of the rally, why they think drones are unethical, and what Americans need to know. Bruce Berry is a member of Veterans for Peace who served in Vietnam, and Leah Bolger spent 20 years on active duty in the U.S. Navy, and is the former president of Veterans for Peace.

Bolger also spent some time with a delegation in Pakistan to see firsthand how drones have affected communities there. She talks about her experiences in the video.

The anti-drone rally began outside Mapps Coffee on Riverside Avenue, and participants then marched around the neighborhood.
