Resist drone wars: the impact of drone attacks on Gaza

24 March 2014 - 10:10am
Event

Monday 24 March, 7pm
Friends House (173-177 Euston Rd, London NW1 2BJ)

Join us for a public meeting and discussion on Israel's drone attacks on Gaza. Come and hear the stories of those at the receiving end of drone technology, taken from Corporate Watch's recent visit to Gaza.

Find out how to make sure that Israeli drone makers don't profit any further from bloodshed in Gaza.

Mary Dobbing will talk about Drone Wars UK's newly published research into Israel's production, use and proliferation of drones. We'll also hold a practical planning discussion on how we can resist the drone wars from here in London, led by London Palestine Action.

"If they just knew for a second what a weapon can do, what it costs us, I think they would stop. I think they have no souls . When they look at the TV and see the news did they see the people killed by these drones, how did they feel? If they just came here for one night and heard the bombing and the planes and the drones - I don't know what they would feel - I think they should come here and live our experience in war and they would understand." Ridda Abu Znaid, who watched as her sister and cousin were killed by an Israeli drone strike in the Gaza strip in 2009, speaking about the companies who manufacture drones

Organised by UK groups campaigning against drones: Drone Wars UK, London Palestine Action, Stop The Arms Fair, War on Want and Corporate Watch.
