San Diego Veterans For Peace to lead weekly demonstration at General Atomics (Poway) questioning use of Predator Drone over the United States skies
Who: Veteran and associate members of the San Diego Veterans For Peace (Chapter #91) and friends and supporters
When: Thursday, August 16th and every Thursday thereafter, 4-6 PM
Where: Corner of Scripps Poway Parkway and General Atomics Way, Poway, CA
What: Chapter veterans from all five military services and associate members, friends and supporters will be demonstrating and educating the public concerning the current and expanding use use of the Predator Drone throughout the skies of the United States. Homeland Security and law enforcement are using the drones to do surveillance work throughout the United States without judicial oversight. Law abiding citizens, meeting to conduct business or political affairs, are being recorded and documented by the US government and local officials for unknown purposes. The Predator Drone, made by General Atomics, in Poway, makes continuing war an easy choice, thus keeping America embroiled in current and future wars of choice.
Why: The San Diego Veterans For Peace is a 501-C-3 veterans educational organization that works to increase public awareness of the overall costs of war and to restrain our government from intervening, overtly or covertly, in the affairs of other nations. The public is always invited to join us.
