Rally & March Saturday, May 3–Tell GA Tech: Ban Killer Drones

The Right to Peace Walk concludes on Saturday, May 3 at Georgia Tech, where millions of Pentagon dollars fund research into further development of killer drones to be used in wars, often undeclared, with civilian populations too many times the victims.The Walk began April 26 at Ft. Benning, site of the School of the Americas where for decades Latin American troops have been trained in counter-insurgency and population control methods that have been used against peasants, indigenous people, union members, students, faith and community leaders seeking equity and justice. The base is also now a testing site for killer drones.

US militarism in all its forms exacts an unbearable price on the human rights not just of the people of this country where education, healthcare, housing, transportation, and so much more are sacrificed to pay for the policies of endless war.

It is the people of the world who bear the brunt of death and injuries in the millions, the loss of homes and workplaces, the destruction of land and water resources and the misery of displacement.

Georgia Peace and Justice Coalition demands a complete and total ban on the research, development, manufacture, testing and use of killer drones
