USA: Hundreds take part in pacifist march on the Pentagon

Hundreds of people held a march on the Pentagon to protest against US military actions overseas on Sunday. The march was organised by a coalition of activists from Answer Coalition, Code Pink, Veterans for Peace, and others. According to Code Pink co-founder Medea Benjamin, their antiwar march was “a bipartisan issue, both the Democrats and the Republicans get money from the weapons... Еще manufacturers, from the lobbyists, from those who profit from war,” and explained that politicians, including US President Donald Trump, were hesitant to cut ties with the Saudis due to income from arms sales. “We say that's ridiculous, we don't want an economy that is based on killing people,” Benjamin added.
