The world is waking up to the Obama administration’s dangerous and illegal use of drones for expanding warfare by targeted assassinations, along with threats to our civil liberties and right to dissent by increasing drone surveillance by police agencies at home.

“April Days of Action”, a national campaign of counter-drone protests and teach-ins focused on drone bases, manufacturers and research and training centers, was called to alert the public and to challenge the escalating threat of drone warfare and spying.

Not only are lethal drones used in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia, but the US is using drones in Iran and Syria as preparation for possible military intervention.  We must stop these acts of war now!

NO KILLER DRONES!

NO SPY DRONES!

NO U.S. WAR ON SYRIA OR IRAN!
