On the 22nd of Febrauary, Code Pink continued a week of protests against US drone murders with a visit to the Pakistani Embassy. After a few speeched outside in the rain, the Ambassador invited everyone in for tea and to discuss the drones.
A number of the activists present at the Embassy were Pakistani themselves, and several of the Code Pink members who were in Pakistan with Imrad Kahn’s march to the Federally Administered Tribal Areas were also present.
The Ambassador called the drone strikes a violation of Pakistan’s sovereignty. An activist from Catholic Worker apologized on behalf of the American people for the murderous drone strikes.
One of the other activists suggested the possiblity that Pakistan could demand an end to drone strikes as a precondition of permitting the US to continue using the Khyber Pass route to move heavy equipment into and out of Afghanistan.
