Day 2 National Days of Actions Against Drones started early with 50 people showing up at 8 a.m. for the first demo of the day outside the La Jolla home of General Atomics CEO Neal Blue.
CodePinkers performed a billionaire cocktail party skit/street theater at which Blue and his buddies chatted about why it is sooo good for their class to have drones making money for them and it only affects terrorists anyway…
A small "personal" drone flown over the heads of the demonstrators was promptly confiscated by police. The crowd asked for their toy drone back, but the policeman said, "It could hurt somebody," which played into the drone issue. The police were cool about it all.
A brief included the reading the names of children killed by drones, posters of children and a display of children's shoes.
The group is now off to the 10 a.m. demo at General Atomics headquarters!
