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 and potential armed drones 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, Syria, and Mali as preparation for
possible military intervention and threatening North Korea with nuclear war.
We must stop these acts of war now!

 

NO KILLER DRONES!

NO SPY DRONES!

HANDS OFF KOREA, IRAN, SYRIA!
