Man from Iowa Comes to California to Protest

Dustin Menke drove from Mason City, Iowa to protest injustice and to talk about how medicine killed 475,000 people in 2011 to anyone who would listen. He participated in the Venice protest as well as one of the protests the day before.

Dustin said it took him 24 hours to drive from Iowa to California. “I feel the Floyd incident was unjust but I mainly come to talk about the medical profession and their mistakes that killed 475K in 2011,” he said. (Statement has not been confirmed.)”

He displayed his scars on his neck and his back as proof of injury or surgery. He said he was dropped on floor three times during hip replacement surgery at Mayo Clinic, “fracturing both hips and shattering my left completely.”

He carries with him a fact sheet for anyone who will listen. “New York Times has interviewed me,” he said. He plans to stay in California indefinitely. He claims he can breathe better here than Iowa because of lack of humidity.
