SHEFFIELD CND INVITE YOU TO JOIN THEM FOR A
OUTSIDE THE RAF BASE AT WADDINGTON LINCOLN
THE NEW REAPER SQUADRON OF UNMANNED ARMED DRONES OPERATING IN AFGHANISTAN WILL BE CONTROLLED FROM HERE.
Drones are a problem because:
They make war more likely as the pilots controlling them are thousands of miles away so there are fewer British deaths, so war is ‘cheap’
Being so far away from the point of killing can create a play station mentality in the operators
Drones hit civilians and can go out of control altogether – 90 drone crashes since 2007 – 5 in 2012
Drones are surrounded by secrecy and a lack of accountability.
We have booked a coach to go to Waddington on 23rd September to demonstrate our opposition to these frightening weapons.
We propose to leave Pond Hill at 10-30am and leave Waddington at 4pm. The cost will be £14 Please let Kath know if you want to join us. firstname.lastname@example.org
Bring food and if you play an instrument or sing it would be good to have your participation.
