[SDCPJ] Call to action! Welcome to "DRONE Diego" --- did you know the drones killing people are mede San Diego?

Welcome to "DRONE Diego!'

The drones killing people in countries like Pakistan are made here in San Diego County by General Atomics.  We have many other drone connections, including surveillance drones on the border between the U.S. and Mexico.   

This past Saturday, 10/20/12, Medea Benjamin, co-founder of CODEPINK, presented us with an informative and dynamic call to do more about drones ... especially here in San Diego.  Here are some resources, to help us answer that call!

Some of us are currently meeting to work out a project developed in a post-program strategy session with Medea for bringing more attention to San Diego's role in drone production.  Details TBA; if you're interested in working with us on a committee planning this, please let me know!  

In the meantime, San Diego Veterans for Peace is holding a weekly vigil at the killer drone production site in Poway.  Thursdays, 4-6 p.m., on the corner of Scripps Poway Parkway and General Atomics Way in Poway.  PLEASE COME OUT AND SUPPORT THIS ACTION!

And! PLEASE educate yourself on this issue!  We'll be providing more educational/action info in coming weeks.

If you missed the Peace Center program featuring Medea Benjamin, co-founder of CODEPINK, talking about her new book, "Drone Warfare:  Killing by Remote Control,"  we recommend reading her book which is available here:

These two websites have great current info:

Stanford and NYU have issued an important new Report on Drones:
