US, British and Israeli drones have killed hundreds of innocent civilians in Pakistan, Somalia, Yeman, Afghanistan and Gaza. These pilot-less killing machines are fuelling anger and terrorism around the world, endangering us all, and are paving the way for a future in which robots make "decisions" to kill with no human oversight. Next month, campaigners from around the UK will be taking part in a week of action to oppose the growing menace of drone warfare.
Events include a week-long peace walk from Shenstone to RAF Waddington ( http://tinyurl.com/dronespeacewalk
) and a 100-mile bike ride from Fylingdales to Menwith Hill, organised by Yorkshire CND (see www.yorkshirecnd.org.uk). Additional events are already planned for Wales, Oxfordshire, Tavistock, Lewisham and Central London.
Plan your action now:
- organise a street stall (free leaflets, posters and briefings available here: http://tinyurl.com/woaresources
- join the anti-drone peace walk ( http://tinyurl.com/dronespeacewalk
- organise a protest at a site connected to the drones (see the map on p.3 of this on-line PDF file: http://tinyurl.com/dronesitesmap
- hold a public meeting on the issue (email email@example.com
if you'd like the Network to provide a speaker)
and e-mail the Drone Campaign Network ( firstname.lastname@example.org
) so they can help publicise it.
The Week of Action is organised by the Drone Campaign Network.
