PROTEST U.S. KILLER DRONES!

As of January 2013, the United Nations has launched a special investigation into the U.S. killer drone program. Leading the UN investigation is Ben Emmerson, the UN rapporteur on counterterrorism and human rights. He said, “The exponential rise in the use of drone technology in a variety of military and non-military contexts represents a real challenge to the framework of established international law.”
The U.S. Military & Central Intelligence Agency drones have maimed & killed thousands, including innocent people in Yemen, Somalia, Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, & Pakistan, without charge, trial or conviction of crime. This year alone there have been over 362+ strikes in Pakistan. The Bureau of Investigative Journalism reports on estimates up to 3461 people killed and 891 injured in Pakistan, in Yemen 1112 killed and 178 injured, in these two countries alone by CIA drone strikes.
Stand with us opposing CIA & U.S. Military drones used in extrajudicial killings. U.S. killer drone strikes are illegal, immoral, and must stop now!
