Saturday 27th April protest: Ground the Drones
Stop Britain being a launchpad for killerdrones

Assemble: 12 noon at Lincoln station
March to rally at 2pm
at RAF Waddington – the UK's new
Centre of Drone Operations
 

This spring, the UK will double its number of armed Reaper drones in Afghanistan and will for the first time begin operating drones over Afghanistan from a new facility at RAF Waddington near Lincoln.


Over the past four years, the US has launched hundreds of drone strikes in Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia and Libya, with reliable reports
showing thousands of people have been killed, including hundreds of children. In Afghanistan where the US and UK have launched over 1,500 drone strikes, it is simply not known how many people have perished in these strikes. In Gaza too, many Palestinians have been killed by Israeli drone strikes.

Drones have become the latest weapon of choice in the so-called war on terror. Drones make it much easier for politicians to launch military intervention and assassinate suspects anywhere in the world. Drones are making the world a much more dangerous place.

Join us in calling on the government to abandon the use of drones as weapons of war.

Called by CND, Drone Campaign Network, Stop the War Coalition, War on Want.
