Rafeef Ziadah, Palestinian artist and activist from War on Want will speak on Drone Wars-Death by Remote Control
This spring, the UK will double its number of armed drones in Afghanistan and will begin operating drones from RAF Waddington near Lincoln. Over the past four years, the US has launched hundreds of drone strikes in Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia and Libya, with reports showing thousands of people have been killed. In Afghanistan where the US and UK have launched over 1,500 drone strikes, it is not known how many people have perished. 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 people anywhere in the world. Drones are making the world a much more dangerous place.
Come to this Brent Stop the War meeting to learn more about what is happening and discuss this important issue. ALL WELCOME
