Formed in the United States of America in 1985 Veterans For Peace exists to abolish war. Now for the first time VFP will co-ordinate action in two continents on the same day. VFP San Diego and VFP UK will hold protests outside the offices of General Atomics in Poway CA and the City of London.
VFP UK will be calling for the grounding of Reaper Drones and for General Atomics to stop manufacturing them. We will be highlighting the fact that General Atomics is partially responsible for the slaughter of numerous innocent people in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Yemen.
