Ground the Drones – sign the petition

Stop Britain being a launchpad for killer drones.
We call on the government to abandon the use of drones as a weapon of war.

Signed by: Chris Cole (Drone Campaign Network); Jeremy Corbyn (MP for Islington North); Lindsey German (Convenor, Stop the War Coalition); Kate Hudson (CND); Rafeef Ziahdah (War On Want).

This spring, the UK will double its number of armed Reaper drones in Afghanistan and will for the first time begin operating drones over Afghanistan from a new facility at RAF Waddington near Lincoln.

CND, Drone Campaign Network, Stop the War Coalition, War on Want and others will protest against the drones at RAF Waddington, Lincoln on the 27 April.


Hugo Chavez, president of Venezuela


The president of Venezuela, Hugo Chavez, who died on Tuesday will be mourned by those in the anti-war and peace movements. Chavez was a strong opponent of the War on Terror, opposed the intervention in Iraq, was critical of any attempt to intervene in other countries of the Middle East such as Iran.

Chris Nineham, who met him as part of an anti war delegation in Caracas in 2006, wrote: ‘He had a real grasp of the dynamics of imperialism, recognising with a certain humility that the war in Iraq, and the opposition to it, were key factors holding the US back from intervening against his government.’

Opposition to the war on terror here helped play a part in that process. The Stop the War Coalition sends its best wishes and deepest condolences to his family and all who mourn him in Venezuela and internationally.
