Report: Victims of the Drug War Candlelight Vigil
State Capital, Montgomery, AL
my fellow Alabamians to the first ever drug-war protest in Montgomery
Alabama. I am Loretta Nall, founder and president of The Alabama
We are here tonight to remember our fellow Americans who are
locked away in prison, whose families are less one mom or one
dad, and those who have been killed in this never-ending and
horribly failed War on Drugs.
Because of the War on Drugs America has become a police state.
It has become a place where you can no longer disagree with
government policy without facing persecution.
It has become a place where police officers question little
kids in school about what their parents are doing at home.
It has become a place where you can lose your career, your
home, your land, your money and your children because of what
the government found in your urine.
The American government has no business in our bladders!
Because we choose to consume a natural plant that is less
dangerous than alcohol and tobacco our government has declared
war on us.
Since when does the government own the minds and bodies of
it citizens? We run the government...We do NOT run FROM the Government!
This is America and unquestionable authority is OUT! We don't
do unquestionable authority here.
We are not
shady characters. We are your friends, your family and your neighbors.
We are Americans. We are patriotic citizens.
We firmly believe in the principals this country was founded
on. Principals like Liberty, Justice and Freedom! We hate anyone
and anything that would corrupt or beloved system. We are prepared
to defend it against all enemies foreign and domestic!
