Photos From CODEPINK Pakistan Delegation

A picture’s worth a thousand words…

One of the CODEPINK members is keeping a photo journal of the Peace March against drones, set to begin Oct. 6.  Until then, they are holding high-level discussions in Islamabad with Pakistani civilian and military leaders as well as American Embassy officials.  Yesterday, they met with the current American charge d’affairs (acting ambassador), Ambassador Hoagland.  Some good coverage at Common Dreams here and here.

And Robert Naiman from Just Foreign Policy is on the ground with the group in Islamabad and is filing good updates, thus far here.

Also, please check out the new Avaaz petition for a virtual worldwide march in solidarity to the Peace March in Waziristan and the Just Foreign Policy petition.

And again, if you’re on Twitter, use the hashtags:  #stopdrones and #PTIPeaceMarch.
