Resisting Drones, Global War & Empire: 4/26-4/28 Syracuse NY
Come to Syracuse this weekend to participate in three days of networking, movement building and resistance!
Syracuse, NY is the home of Hancock Field and the 174th attack wing, an Airforce base from which drones are piloted over Afghanistan and Pakistan. Activists with Upstate Drone Action have been educating and agitating to expose the presence of the Reaper Drone in Syracuse since 2009.
Friday and Saturday there will be workshops culminating with a demonstration protest at Hancock Field coordinated by the Syracuse Peace Council.
Speakers and workshop leaders will include Kathy Kelly of Voice for Creative Nonviolence, Kevin Zeese, Margaret Flowers, and Ann Wright of Occupy DC and the Green Shadow cabinet and many many more.
