[liberationtech] Drone Warfare and Research Awareness Rally! 5/21 in White Plaza @ 12 PM!

From: Joshua Schott <jdschott at stanford.edu>

Join ten Stanford student organizations for a rally in White Plaza on
Tuesday May 21st from 12 PM - 1 PM to raise awareness about the increasing
use of drone warfare throughout the Middle East, South Asia, Central Asia,
and Africa and the research being done at Stanford contributing to the
development of drones. The use of drones has inflicted severe hardship on
the subjected civilian populations of these regions particularly in
Pakistan, Afghanistan and Yemen. The use of drones has killed many
civilians (only 2% of drone victims are high level "militant" targets),
inflicted direct property damage, economic hardship, mental health
problems, inhibited education opportunities, impacted burial traditions and
willingness to attend funerals, harmed community trust, and impacted many
other economic, social and cultural activities. We cannot be silent on this
issue. Join us.
