General Atomics Drones Protest, VFP in San Diego & London

 

General Atomic Drones Protest, VFP in San Diego & London

General Atomics is the manufacturer of the Reaper UAV in service with the US and UK military. The Reaper has been used in numerous attacks in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen and other countries. People targeted by these weapons are killed from above without warning and without due legal process. Numerous entirely innocent people including women and children have been killed by these weapon systems.

 

Formed in the United States of America in 1985 Veterans For Peace exists to abolish war. Now for the first time VFP will co-ordinate action in two continents on the same day. VFP San Diego and VFP London will hold protests outside the offices of General Atomics in Poway CA and the City of London.

VFP London will be calling for the grounding of Reaper Drones and for General Atomics to stop manufacturing them. We will be highlighting the fact that General Atomics is partially responsible for the slaughter of numerous innocent people in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Yemen.

    Stalin would send dissidents to the Gulag in Siberia.
    Bush send them to Guantanamo.
    Now Obama just kills then, with drones and makes jokes about it.
    Despicable.
    Very important action.
    See you there.

    I work in Tower 42 and wanted to show my support for your cause. However because you held the protest in the afternoon and not straddling lunch I didn’t have a chance. By evening everyone wants to rush home with trains to catch.
