We have faith that Americans do not wish to live with endless war.

The Upstate Coalition to Ground the Drones and End the Wars is planning a walk is to heighten public awareness of the mindless murder and relentless terror perpetrated in our names by the criminal use of killer drones on terror suspects. Outdoor markets, wedding parties, and village meetings have all been subjected to drone attacks. Not a way to make friends for America.
Targeted drone assassination is Obama’s favored weapon against "global terrorism", and the Department of Defense now plans to increase its use of drones by 50 percent over the next four years.
We are planning a 165-mile Walk Against Drones, from Hancock Air Base near Syracuse to the Niagara Falls Air Base. Both bases are sites of drone operations, including training and remote piloting of drones over Afghanistan.
The Walk, scheduled for October 7-21, will include outreach programs at colleges and community centers along the way, including Rochester, Brockport, and Niagara Falls.
