Hundreds of protesters called for the closure of Ramstein airbase near the city of Kaiserslautern on Saturday. The anti-war protesters and peace activists attempted to block the entrance to the military facility. Those who refused to move were carried away by the police. «A US whistleblower made clear, that this base is also absolutely necessary for the US drone wars that under German law are... Еще considered illegal,» said Elsa, an American protester. Another visitor from the States, Toby Blome said, «The drone killing that the US is doing is totally barbaric and immoral, and we need to stop it.» Peace campaigners are furious about the base's involvement in most of the US's wars in recent decades, including its controversial drone programme.
