FACEBOOK DELETES INVITE TO CIA DRONE PROTEST
By Brenda Norrell
Cindy Sheehan said Facebook deleted an invitation to the CIA Drone Protest in Langley, Virginia, scheduled for 1 pm to 4 pm Jan. 16, 2010. Sheehan said “the CIA is becoming overly involved in terrorizing populations.” Sheehan joins a powerhouse of women activists to lead the CIA Drone Protest, including Cynthia McKinney, Ann Wright, Kathy Kelly and Debra Sweet.
“We had an event with over 250 confirmed guests and it was deleted by Facebook,” Sheehan said. “We are going to the source of one of the big problems in the US Empire — the CIA — to protest its extra-judicial killings of people in Pakistan. We are against the use of UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) and manned aerial vehicles, but we believe that it is very dangerous that the CIA is becoming overly involved in terrorizing populations,” Sheehan said.
