Wed Mar 6 2013 (Updated 08/09/13)'Ground the Drones' Demonstration Highlights Child Casualties from Attacks
On Friday, March 1, Women In Black of Santa Cruz, along with other peace groups, demonstrated at the corner of Cooper and Pacific in downtown Santa Cruz to call for an end to the U.S. drone program and to tell the government and President of the United States, "Ground the drones! Stop killing children and other innocent people!"
While participants held over 150 placards, one person chanted to pedestrians on Pacific, "These are the names of some of the kids killed by U.S. drones." Organizers report that under President Barack Obama's watch, and implemented by the CIA, hundreds of innocent children and other adults have been killed and maimed by the use of drones (robotic planes) in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen, and Somalia.
Women in Black of Santa Cruz holds a weekly peace vigil on Fridays from 5-6 p.m. at the same location. The vigils in Santa Cruz are typically silent demonstrations where participants dress in all black while holding a banner and signs calling for peace.
