Drones conference in Cardiff

DRONE WARFARE:
FROM WALES TO GAZA
All Wales Anti-Drones Conference
Saturday 25 May, 1.30 – 5.30 pm
Wallace Lecture Theatre, Main Building
Cardiff University, Park Place
The US launches hundreds of drone strikes in Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, and reports show thousands of people killed, including hundreds of children, while Israel uses drones to launch regular strikes on the besieged people of Gaza.
The Welsh Government uses millions of pounds of our taxes to facilitate the testing of drones at Parc Aberporth. The Israeli military are a frequent presence there. Do we want our government to be complicit in war crimes?
