[SDCPJ] For Immediate Release: San Diego's "Anti-Drone Days of Action" Kick Off Nationwide Protests

San Diego's "Anti-Drone Days of Action" Kick Off Nation-Wide Protests:  Press Release Attached

     "National Anti-Drone Days of Action" from April 4 through 7 in San Diego start a month of protests across the United States against the policy and practice of drone warfare and secret surveillance.  Local and national organizations are coordinating a series of events to increase the attention to why drone killings and surveillance are bad practice and policy for the United States.  San Diego's "Anti-Drone Days" is not one, but a series of events (see complete listing at the end of the attached Press Release). 

     San Diego is where these protests will start based on the region's role as the "national capital" of military drone production.  Killer and surveillance drones pour out of San Diego at increasing rates, matched by the rise in deaths and dismemberment from US strikes across the globe. Most of this production is tied to two corporate contracting giants — Northrop Grumman and General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, which is headquartered in San Diego.  "It's so exciting to see that people around the country are now questioning the use of drones to kill people around the world with no accountability. Focusing on General Atomics in San Diego is absolutely critical, as it is a company that literally makes a killing out of killing. It's time to name and shame the companies and people who profit from keeping us in a terrible cycle of endless war."  -- Medea Benjamin, author of Drone Warfare: Killing by Remote Control (2012) and co-founder of Global Exchange and CodePink.
