The No Drones Coalition calls for a worldwide ban of weaponized drones and drone surveillance. The Granny Peace Brigade, as part of the No Drone Coalition, is planning a week of action to promote a worldwide ban of weaponized and surveillance drones during the annual meeting of the UN General Assembly, from Sept 23–28, 2013.
The Granny Peace Brigade, Know Drones, World Can't Wait, CodePink NYC and other organizations in the No Drones Coalition, will position three MQ-9 Reaper drone replicas in busy spots in Manhattan. We will leaflet and talk with people about the suffering resulting from US drone attacks and how drone surveillance fits into the global structure of electronic surveillance being created by the US. We will also talk about the danger this presents in terms of military and police intervention, particularly to those here and around the world who are already being exploited and abused.
We will have information with key points to assist you when you talk to people, and world maps showing US drone bases.
