Pakistan Protesters 'March' Against US Drones Print article Send a Tip from AP 6 Oct 2012 post a comment By ZARAR KHAN Associated Press ISLAMABAD Hundreds of Pakistanis, joined by dozens of American activists, have launched a motorcade "march" against U.S. drone strikes that they hope will reach the militant-riddled Afghan border region. The main faction of the Pakistani Taliban has denounced the protest, and it is unclear how far the protesters will get. The two-day march _ in reality a long vehicle convoy _ is being led by Imran Khan, the former cricket star-turned-politician. It began Saturday morning in Islamabad and is intended to end in South Waziristan tribal region, a frequent target of drone-fired American missiles. The American activists are from the U.S.-based anti-war group CODEPINK. Drone strike opponents allege such attacks kill numerous innocent civilians and terrorize communities. U.S. officials have said the majority of those killed in the strikes are militants.
