Anti-Drone Organizing Meeting

When: Monday, March 4, 2013, 2:00 pm
Where: American Friends Service Committee • 2161 Massachusetts Avenue • Porter Sq T • Cambridge

The Network to Stop Drone Surveillance and Warfare (NSDSW) was organized in New York on December 15, 2012, with the following statement of purpose:

Horrified by the facts of the era of drone warfare and surveillance technology, we declare our commitment to establishing an ongoing network of groups and organizations. The Network to Stop Drone Surveillance and Warfare seeks to initiate and coordinate events and actions that will raise a united and spirited voice for justice and peace, and to stop weaponized drones and related technology applications. These activities are aimed at highlighting the illegality, immorality, and unconstitutional nature of using drones to spy on and/or kill human beings.

The Network has called for "April Days of Action" to spotlight drone manufacturing facilities, drone research and training, and drone bases.

United for Justice with Peace calls for Eastern Massachusetts organizers to join together to take up the NSDSW's call, plan one or more April actions, and potentially form an ongoing network.

The meeting will address both weaponized drones and surveillance drones.  After introductions, we will present the information we have on drone manufacturing and research activity in the Greater Boston area, then discuss possible campaign targets and campaign planning.
