nor should we

U.S. war-makers are using drones and secret operations for extrajudicial killing, making war seem easy and cheap to politicians; attractive to a public attuned to video games, while sowing fear, hatred and revenge among those subjected to genocide.

Spring Days of Action 

World Can't Wait supports the campaign to End Drone Killing, Drone Surveillance and Global Militarization. We urge you to sign the Call. Organizers will provide the public with information they need in order to more fully educate their communities. The campaign will encourage activists to win passage of laws that prohibit domestic and international use of weaponized drones.

A growing list of specific actions can be found on the KNOW DRONES website.

some other things you can do

The world can't wait for institutional reform or a change in "attitude" of the politicians who purport to represent their constituency. We need to do no less than change the way Americans think about the rest of humanity:

·         put yourself in "their" shoes... American lives are not more important than other people's lives

·         demand answers... the truth is often not pretty, but unavoidable

·         speak out for those who can't... resist the complicity of silence

·         know what you're talking about... and we don't mean just facts and figures here; FAQs help to delineate the basis of our outrage, but can't replace the moral conviction that targeted killing is a crime

·         hold true to personal values... we don't need legal "opinion" to know right from wrong

·         find courage in the knowledge that it doesn't have to be this way...

a better world is possible
