End Drone Killing and Surveillance

By Joan Ecklein, DISARM/End Wars Issue Committee

WILPF has endorsed the CALL FOR SPRING DAYS OF ACTION in April and May, 2014, a coordinated campaign endorsed by many peace and justice organizations to end drone Killing, drone surveillance and global militarization.

The campaign will focus on drone bases, drone research facilities and test sites, and drone manufacturers.

Marge Van Cleef (mvc@igc.org)  and Joan Ecklein (joanecklein@comcast.net) will be coordinating WILPF anti drone activities during the two crucial months of April and May. It is very important to let us know what anti drone activities your branches have planned for these two months. We feel it is necessary to keep everyone informed of all the activities so that there can be some coordinated actions and we can gain strength from each other.

If you want to know what actions are being planned by all participants, a web site is being developed that will tell you just when, where and what events  are taking place. It will be up shortly and we can inform you of the address when we know it.

Also, there are weekly nationall bulletins being posted. If you want to subscribe to the weekly campaign bulletin contact Nickmottern@earthlink.net.  View a comprehensive list of things people can do to stop drone warfare and surveillance at KnowDrones.org.

In addition there is an open organizers conference call every Wednesday at 9 p.m. EST. Call 605-562-3060 and enter access code 484539#.
