ORGANIZE! Build the National Network Against Drones

by Joe Scarry

A two-hour block has been set aside at the upcoming 2013 CODEPINK Drone Summit “Drones Around the Globe: Proliferation and Resistance” (Nov 16/17) for the purpose ofbuilding and strengthening the US national network against drones (NSDSW – Network to Stop Drone Surveillance and Warfare).

We will meet 8:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. Sunday, November 17. (Exact room at Georgetown Law TBD.)

The main goal of our time together will be to strengthen our ability to support each other in our common endeavors, particularly:

(1) protests against existing and planned drone bases and command centers
(2) college and university outreach
(3) high school education
(4) organizing in communities with drone manufacturing
(5) press outreach
(6) online tools

. . . as well as other areas.

Please give some thought to two questions:

* do you have expertise, experience, resources specific to one (or more) of those 6 areas mentioned?* would you be willing to commit time to an ongoing effort to share expertise, experience, resources specific to one (or more) of those 6 areas mentioned?

In particular, we want to lay the foundation for strong working relationships in the months of preparation that will lead up to the spring protests (April Days of Action Against Drones 2014).

If you will be at the DC conference, we look forward to working with you in person to connect all of our strengths . . .

. . . AND . . . whether or not you will be attending the DC conference, please feel free to respond to to indicate how you would be willing to help build the network.

Thank you and best regards,

Peter Lems, American Friends Service Committee (AFSC)
