SIERRA VISTA — On a hot Monday afternoon, a dozen of people protested the use of drones — unmanned aerial vehicles — by the United States. The group gathered across the street from Fort Huachuca’s main gate.

It was part of a national protest which occurred at other military installations across the United States on Monday. At Fort Huachuca there is training for operators and maintainers in the U.S. military for drone programs.

During the 90 minute protest, one man, “David,” spoke with the protestors, agreeing on the need to ensure unmanned aerial vehicles are not be used to spy on American citizens, but he had no problem of targeting people other nations, including U.S. citizens, if they are betraying America.

On the other hand, an organizer of the Drone Ranger Action Committee of Bisbee, said she too doesn’t want America’s civil freedoms impacted by this new technology.

Mimi Ferraro added she has concerns about the lethal use of unmanned aerial systems by the United States in other nations, as well as expressing that the technology could be misused against American citizens within the borders of the United States.

We invite you to participate in a day of peaceful demonstration on Monday April 29, 2:30-4 p.m. at the Fort Huachuca Main Gate, Sierra Vista. Since 2004 more than 4,700 deaths are attributed to drone strikes. We’re encouraging a coalition of community voices, faith-based, political, sectarian, to express concern regarding the ethical, moral, spiritual implications of the use of drone technology in warfare and the equally problematic domestic privacy concerns. Literature will be available but we encourage you to bring signs, share information, prayers, let your voice be heard. Participation could make all the difference in bringing attention to this critical issue. For more information, call 378-6597.

They are right. We need to be very careful with the use of this technology overseas and we need to forbid the use of drone technology within US borders.

If we don’t, then very soon local governments are going to be running patterns over their county looking for anything they can right a money making citation over.

Liberal protests are a cottage industry in Bisbee.

I remember driving into town one time and, there on the square, in front of the building that faces Tombstone Canyon Rd, there was ann anti-war demonstration by "The Women in Black".

Remember them?

There they were: a bunch of ugly women in long black skirts, holding hands with a bunch of ponytailed ugly men in black suits, strung across the face of the Chamber of Commerce building, I think is. All looking serious and sober, emulating an Amish Sunday school gathering.

Odd place, Bisbee.
