Resistance to USA’s Drone Assassination Programme

On 19 January, anti-drone grandmother Mary Anne Grady Flores was convicted to 6 months in jail.  Her conviction sprang from her protest at Hancock Air National Guard Base (New York state) in 2013.

Earlier this year, former drone operators blew the whistle on the US drone programme and wrote a collective letter to President Obama. They argued that the killing of civilians through drone strikes has acted as one of the most “devastating driving forces for terrorism and destabilization around the world”.

Thanks to whistleblowers, we now know that 90% of victims of attacks by drones are civilians, including children.
