Ground the Drones

Saturday, November 8, 2014

Reaper Drones, like those piloted by remote control nearby in Battle Creek, have killed thousands of civilians, terrorized entire populations, and increased the atmosphere of fear and hatred in the Middle East.

It is time for us to tell our leaders– and our neighbors– that it is time to Ground the Drones and seek more productive, nonviolent alternatives.

1:00pm-2:00pm

Nonviolent Demonstration Battle Creek

Air National Guard Base 3367 W. Dickman Rd.

A peaceful gathering at the gates of the base where drones are remotely piloted. We will ask our friends and neighbors at the base to end their participation in drone warfare and we will call for an end to war and for the development of peaceful alternatives.

2:30pm-4:30pm

Lend Your Voice,
Plan the Movement!
1st United Methodist Church 111 E. Michigan in Battle Creek

Join the conversation about how to continue speaking out against drone warfare. We will discuss strategies and next steps for reaching out to our leaders and to the public, in the name of finding peaceful alternatives to drones. Light Supper will be provided.

(From the base, drive 3 miles east on Dickman Rd. Turn Left on Capital SW. East Michigan will be the 3rd right.)
