16] – The organization Ban Killer Drones is promoting actions on December 28th, the Christian Feast of the Holy Innocents, calling for an end to drone attacks. The recent report in the New York Times, "Civilian Casualties Files," is another reason to take action. Besides the call for actions, Ban Killer Drones is urging concerned citizens to lobby House Democrats to investigate the U.S. military’s systematic cover-up of civilian casualties caused by its drone-dependent air wars, urging them to conduct an investigation into the numbers and identities of all people killed by U.S. drones in the past twenty years.
So on Tues., Dec. 28 we will hold our Ban Killer drones support demonstration at Johns Hopkins University at 33rd and N. Charles Sts. from 4 to 5 PM.
