Faith Rally Against Drone Warfare
Make plans to join us in D.C. for a protest against drone warfare!
Maryknoll Missioenrs recognizes the destructive impacts of U.S drone strikes around the world. On May 3rd, faith communities will gather in Washington, DC to bring attention to why drone warfare is immoral, ineffective, and often illegal. They will call for an end to CIA drone strikes and for the company responsible for the development of Predator and Reaper drones, General Atomics, to sign the Future of Life pledge on lethal autonomous weapons.
WHAT: Faith Rally Against Drone Warfare
WHEN: Friday, May 3, 2019, 12:00 - 1:00 PM
WHERE: Edward Murrows Park, H and 18th Streets, NW
More details can be found here. Can’t make it to D.C. for the rally? Organize your own demonstration in your own community, and support us on social media with the hashtag #EndDroneWarfare.
Drone strikes are being ordered on our behalf, as U.S. citizens. It is important that we take the time to speak up for justice for the victims of the drone strikes that are already happening, and preemptively protect human rights that would be taken away by the use of autonomous weapons.
