Dear peace friends,

Here it is again, the first Saturday of the month coming up on May 1st.

We hope you can come to the BAE site on Pulaski Rd. in Greenlawn *at 1 PM to hold signs protesting the use of drones, an escalating threat to all of us.

If you can, please set aside an extra 15 or more minutes to hand out informational flyers to give a fuller explanation of the danger of drones to civilians everywhere, even at home.
