9th Anniv. Of Afghan War Protest-Street Theater

by Michael Borkson - Indymedia Boston

Boston, Mass.-Oct. 9, 2010:

Peace activists staged a mock drone attack/die-in to protest the 9th anniversary of the US war on Afghanistan. On Boston Common, sponsored by Massachusetts Peace Action, UJP Afghanistan/ Pakistan Task Force, and the Committee For Peace and Human Rights.

from the event leaflet-- 
Imagine that a Drone Just Fired a Missile at You:

On the 9th Anniversary of the War in Afghanistan:

The CIA and US Air Force use drones -- unmanned aircraft — for surveillance, bombings, and assassinations in Afghanistan and Pakistan. They are flown remotely by pilots in Nevada and Langley, VA.

Drones are devastating! In Pakistan alone, estimates are that 700 civilians were killed in 2009 and that for every militant killed, 10 innocent people die. These deaths fuel anti-American sentiments and turn citizens into terrorists.
