“Stand Up and Speak Out!” Drone Protest Demonstration
Saturday, April 22, 2017
from 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM
On the final Saturday of each month we protest outside the Reaper Drone Command Center at the Horsham Air National Guard Station, at the corner of County Line Rd & Easton Rd, Horsham, PA.
LEPOCO organizes a carpool from the Lehigh Valley that leaves at 10:45 am and departs from the park and ride at 1965 Silvex Rd (behind the Wendy’s and Turkey Hill on Route 412).
According to www.droneswatch.org, “The Bureau of Investigative Journalism estimates that nearly 4,000 total casualties have resulted from U.S. drone strikes in Pakistan, Yemen, and Somalia. As many as 954 have been civilians, and as many as 225 have been children.”
Furthermore, “an estimated 98% of victims of drone strikes are ‘collateral damage,’ or in more human terms, civilians, children, or suspected militants who are either minor, low-level affiliates or whose involvement with militants has never been proven.” This count includes fours American citizens also killed by drone strikes.
The U.S. Air Force has established a drone war command center right here in Pennsylvania at the Horsham Air Guard Station to control deadly Reaper Drones.
