Drone Campaign Network | 18.09.2012 17:09 | Afghanistan | Anti-militarism | Terror War | World

US, British and Israeli drones have killed hundreds of innocent civilians in Pakistan, Somalia, Yeman, Afghanistan and Gaza. These pilot-less killing machines are fuelling anger and terrorism around the world, endangering us all, and are paving the way for a future in which robots make "decisions" to kill with no human oversight. Next month, campaigners from around the UK will be taking part in a week of action to oppose the growing menace of drone warfare.

Events include a week-long peace walk from Shenstone to RAF Waddington ( and a 100-mile bike ride from Fylingdales to Menwith Hill, organised by Yorkshire CND (see Additional events are already planned for Wales, Oxfordshire, Tavistock, Lewisham and Central London.
