Preparations for war are still moving ahead, despite the diplomatic turn that was caused by overwhelming opposition from the U.S. public and the international community. We are holding a regional anti-war protest in Chicago to tell the politicians:

No U.S. War on Syria

At the same time as the U.S. is preparing for war on Syria, and despite the growing controversy about the use of drones, the Obama administration has made it clear that the drone wars are not ending soon.

End Drone Warfare Abroad & Drone Spying at Home

The U.S. is already engaged in numerous wars.  While the occupation of Iraq has ended, and we have “only” 60,500 troops in Afghanistan, the addiction to war hasn’t ended.  For example, we are not “at war” with Pakistan or Yemen, but as many as 4000 people, including several hundred children, have been killed there by U.S. drone strikes.

In Chicago, the Boeing Company is vying for a contract with the Navy for a new combat drone – a contract that they say they must win to stay competitive among arms manufacturers.

It’s time to end the drone wars, not prepare to build another generation of deadly weapons.
