JOIN BOSTON APRIL DAYS OF ACTION AGAINST

LETHAL AND SURVEILLANCE DRONES

The world is waking up to the Obama administration's dangerous and illegal
use of drones for expanding warfare by targeted assassinations, along with
threats to our civil liberties and right to dissent by increasing drone
surveillance by police agencies at home.

"April Days of Action", a national campaign of counter-drone protests and
teach-ins focused on drone bases, manufacturers and research and training
centers, was called to alert the public and to challenge the escalating
threat of drone warfare and spying.

Not only are lethal drones used in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia,
but the US is using drones in Iran and Syria as preparation for possible
military intervention.  We must stop these acts of war now!

NO KILLER DRONES!

NO SPY DRONES!

NO U.S. WAR ON SYRIA OR IRAN!
