Southern Arizona peace activists have organized a anti-drone protest outside of Fort Huachuca today, Monday, April 29.
Drones are a big deal in Southern Arizona. Ft. Huachuca, Davis-Monthan, Raytheon, the University of Arizona, and Cochise College– all have a piece of the military industrial complex's drone pie, and if our esteemed US Senators have there way, more money for drones along the Arizona-Mexico border, more money for militarization of the border overall, and more money (and customers) for private prisons will be attached to "imigration reform" legislation.
Sorry for the late notice about this action, but here's the information from the organizers:
We invite you to participate in a day of peaceful demonstration on Monday April 29th, 2:30-4:00 PM at the Fort Huachuca Main Gate, Sierra Vista AZ Since 2004 over 4,700 deaths are attributed to Dronestrikes, civilian deaths remain unconfirmed though unfortunately post-strike photos show many children are among the lost. We’re encouraging a coalition of community voices, faith based, political, sectarian, to express concern regarding the ethical, moral, spiritual implications of the use of drone technology in warfare and the equally problematic domestic privacy concerns. Literature will be available but we encourage you to bring signs, share information, prayers, let your voice be heard. Participation could make all the difference in bringing attention to this critical issue.
