Leicester Drones Demo

Leicester CND | 12.12.2011 18:43 | Anti-militarism | Palestine | Sheffield

Demo on Thursday at 64 Scudamore Road, Leicester outside the Thales factory which makes Watchkeeper drones in partnership with Israeli arms manufacturer Elbit.

A worldwide arms race is under-way.

As many as 50 nations have purchased robot, surveillance drones. The USA, Israel and the UK have armed drones. While some nations, like Germany, China, Iran and Russia, are developing them.

Drones are lethal weapons that escalate conflict, rather than solve it and are changing the face of conflict, making it much easier to attack and terrorise ordinary people whether or not war has been declared on their country. Their use is not discussed in parliament or the UN. People are kept in the dark about it.

We will be outside the Thales factory on Thursday 15th from 4pm to 5:30pm. Come join us!
