MILWAUKEE—About a dozen peace activists, most Catholic Workers, made their way though Milwaukee’s Bastille Days on Saturday, July 16, 2011.  Dressed as drones, a grim reaper and clowns, the group distributed mock million-dollar bills with information on the back about the use of Drones in the U.S.  Bastille Days is an annual festival held in downtown Milwaukee the largest French-themed festival in North America.

One of the group’s members was Francis Pauc.  Pauc, the military man turned pacifist, is a West Point graduate spent six years as a commissioned officer and five of those as a helipcopter pilot.  Pauc’s observation of his participation in the action as well as additional writing by Pauc are may be read at this link.
