The Network to Stop Drone Surveillance and Warfare is coordinating a month of anti-drone actions across the US in April [There is a list of actions in different cities and a sign-up sheet available here].

The “April Days of Action” will target numerous components of the infrastructure that facilitate US drone policy – including military bases, universities involved in research related to drone use, and companies who manufacture drones. This groundswell of opposition to drones is not limited to domestic drone surveillance (which i’ve repeatedly pointed out is fundamentally¬†racist), but includes opposition to drone warfare killing people abroad.

I will be closely following these actions and diligently covering them here at The Drone Fallacy.
