Anti-Drone Songs and Chants

submitted by Susan McLucas  

"Over the Rainbow", Drone version

Somewhere over the rainbow, drones fly by                            
Raining death and destruction out of the clear blue sky.

Somewhere inside a bunker, men fly drones.                        
They kill helpless civilians all without leaving home.

Activists Press Hancock Air Base to Obey International Law

275 People at Protest; 31 Arrested

April 28, 2013 - Thirty one members of the “Upstate Coalition to Ground the Drones and End the Wars” were arrested today at Hancock Air Force Base protesting what is the illegal use of drones in Afghanistan, Pakistan and other countries. Drones are flown from Hancock Field. Over 275 people marched in a solemn funeral procession to demand that Hancock Air National Guard Base cease drone strikes. People carrying banners and coffins identified countries where U.S. drone attacks have killed over a thousand innocent civilians. As they were arrested, some read the names of people who have died in the drone attacks.

People who participated in the demonstration, including some who were arrested, came from all over the country to raise an outcry against the proliferation of drone strikes abroad, including countries with whom the US is not at war.

UJP Anti-Drones Campaign

UJP is a founding member of the Eastern Massachusetts Anti-Drones network, which is an affiliate of the national network.  The US government's use of drones is a key tactic in implementing the new strategies of warfare abroad and accompanying repression of protest and resistance at home.  The UJP anti-drones campaign will oppose killer drones, spy drones and support strict regulation of legal drones.
