April Days of Action Against Drones in INDIANA

Numerous Indiana events are part of the nationwide April Days of Action Against Drones.

On March 26, 2013, as part of the Indiana State University Human Rights Day observance, Robert Naiman gave a presentation entitled ""From Pakistan to Terre Haute: we can do something about the drone strike policy." Robert Naiman is Policy Director at Just Foreign Policy. Mr. Naiman edits the Just Foreign Policy news summary and writes on U.S. foreign policy at Huffington Post. He is President of the Board of Truthout. (Details on the Indiana State University 2013 Human Rights Day page.)


FT. WAYNE - Thursday, April 4, 2013 - - We will hold a protest at the gate of BAE Systems (formerly GE), 2000 Taylor Street. BAE is one of the larger companies that produce parts fo Predator and Reaper drones, the same one that have been killing innocent women, men and children in Pakistan, and other places. In addition to producing a range of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) for war zones, it now is adapting the military-style planes for a consortium of government agencies (police departments, FBI. homeland security, etc) so they will be able to keep an eye on us from above. (There is parking on Taylor Street, as well as Electric Street, a short street running South off of Taylor, across from the BAE gates.)

(Add additional Indiana events to the master list of national April Days of Action actions.)
