UJP is a founding member of the Eastern Massachusetts Anti-Drones network, which is an affiliate of the national network.  The US government's use of drones is a key tactic in implementing the new strategies of warfare abroad and accompanying repression of protest and resistance at home.  The UJP anti-drones campaign will oppose killer drones, spy drones and support strict regulation of legal drones.  
 
The campaign will employ a variety of methods: education about the rapidly expanding use of drones to bring forth the facts and develop ways to contain and stop drones.   Other methods will include: rallies and protests; supporting direct action including civil disobedience; supporting appropriate legislation; lobbying officials including the state legislature and Congress.
 
The UJP website resource will primarily support organizing anti-drone activities in Eastern Massachusetts, as well as providing New England and national connections and information.
 
Examples of materials posted on the UJP website:
 
o flyers which may be used or adapted for specific events
o articles about local activities and basic drone education
o videos and photographs
o text of Massachusetts legislation
o research paper on military industrial complex in Massachusetts
o links to other websites such as the Knowdrones site
o minutes of meetings
o bibliography
 

Materials may be submitted by anyone in UJP or the Anti-Drones network.
