Drones Bury Beautiful Lives
By Raz Mohammed

Raz Mohammed: "I think drones are not good.I remember how, in my village, a drone attack killed my brother-in-law and four of his friends. It was truly sad. A beautiful life was buried and the sound of crying and sorrow arose from peaceful homes. I say that this is inhumane. Today, the idea of humanity has been forgotten. Why do we spend money like this? Why don’t we use an alternative way? The international community says that drones are used to kill the Taliban. This is not true. We should see the truth. Today, it’s hard to find the truth and no one listens to the people."

RAF Waddington, from Lincoln Station, 12 noon

A national protest called by CND, Drones Campaign Network, STW and War on Want: Stop Britain being a launchpad for killer drones

Remotely controlled unmanned drones have become the latest way to wage war and thousands have been killed in drone strikes from Afghanistan to Yemen, from Pakistan to Gaza. Stop drones being operated from UK soil at RAF Waddington, Lincoln

The UK has also launched over 365 drone strikes in Afghanistan since 2008.  In 2011 almost four missiles of every ten fired by drones in Afghanistan were the work of UK forces. More than a quarter of all air missions in Afghanistan are now carried out by armed drones
