The Brandywine Peace Community organized anti-drone war displays and educational programs throughout the Philadelphia area and then in 2013 plans for a drone war remote command center at the Horsham PA Air Guard Station were announced and regular continuing protests began. In 2016 the remote command point, the heart of drone war operations in Pennsylvania, became operational. Our appeal has been and continues to be , that the Governor stop all PA drone war operations.
Now, we also join with people around the country and the world to establish a international treaty to ban weaponized drones and military and police drone surveillance: the BAN KILLER DRONES Campaign. Join us this Tuesday for an important webinar to advance the campaign.
