Spring Days of Drone Action 2014 in BLOOMINGTON

The Bloomington Peace Action Coalition is hosting a slate of exciting events during April and May as part of this year's Spring Days of Drone Action, with opportunities both to organize against drone killing, bear witness to the suffering of the victims, and to spread the word to the public. Central to BPAC's efforts will be local anti-drone legislation for the city of Bloomington as well as the proposed Drone Control Act.
