US anti-war grannies face justice

Tucson’s Raging Grannies have been holding regular protests

Elderly members of a US anti-war group called the ‘raging grannies of Tucson’ are due in court following a protest at an Arizona military recruitment centre.

They have been accused of trespassing after entering the centre earlier this month, saying they wanted to enlist.

The group, mostly women in their 60s and 70s, said they wanted to go to Iraq so their grandchildren could come home.”
….
The Raging Grannies, who are associated with the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, have held protests outside the Tucson recruitment centre every week for three years.
….
Nancy Hutchinson, an Army spokeswoman in Arizona, told AP news agency that those opposed to the Iraq war should contact their legislators rather than bother recruiters.

“They need to direct their frustrations at people who have the power to change things,” she said.
