Important note: For the Sat. February 6, 2010 demo scheduled for one o’clock pm, if there is snow, this demo may be canceled for the day. Please stay posted here or with peace colleagues from VFPLI or Pax Christi, who are expected to make “the call” and send e-mails out at 10am. (I am not sure I will be up at that time in the morning!) Thanks, -KW

Right here, in Greenlawn, Long Island, a weapons manufacturer – BAE – is making components for military drones.

Local peace groups have set up a monthly vigil outside of BAE, to protest the weapons manufacturer and to put the focus on drones and their record of killing innocent civilians. PeaceSmiths, Inc. has endorsed this demonstration.

What:
Demonstration outside of the BAE Building to protest the US use of drones

When:
