MAKE SOME NOISE – April 2nd 2012

11 February, 2012

Monday 2nd April 12pm MEET AT The Fountains – Opposite The Hippodrome
Folk will out at 8am at the entrance to Telephone Avenue
The Conference is being held at Armada House, Telephone Avenue. (off Baldwin St)
Monday 2nd April is the 27th annual Bristol drone conference, but this years gonna be different. Bristol Against Arms Trade have teamed up with Bristol Stop the War and Bristol Palestine Solidarity Campaign, with the aim of making so much noise the conference will be a flop.

Over the past decade we have witnessed the growing use of unmanned aerial vehicles, commonly known as drones, to launch attacks around the globe. From Afghanistan to Somalia, from Gaza to Yemen, local communities live in fear of drones flying over their heads, looking for ‘targets of opportunity’. Legal experts and human rights organisations have also condemned the rise in targeted extra-judicial killing, enabled by the use of armed drones.

Rolls Royce, Thales, EADS, BAE Systems, are some of the delegates at the 27th bristol UAV conference going on for two days, 2nd and 3rd of April. The focus will be future technologies and delegates from around the world will be attending, come and disturb their war like plans.

    read andrew feinstein’s book ‘the shadow world’ a few weeks ago and that and the little bit of research that i did for a follow up post at my blog, leave me thinking that if there was one area where activism is needed it is against the arms trade.
    hope you make so much noise that you stop their disgusting conference.
    was working in the lebanon in 2006 when the israelis attacked; do you know that they didn’t even provide the un with maps of the minefields when they left and that, at least for some time after, little kids were getting their limbs blown off on regular basis?
