MONSTERS IN THE SKY video
World Can't Wait's "Reaper" drone is a 1/5 scale replica of the real thing. Imagine Obama's weapon of choice flying in the sky above your head. Not In My Back Yard? Let's ban the use of killer or surveillance drones ANYWHERE. American lives are not more important than other people's lives. Humanity and the planet come first. Resist the destruction that accompanies this technology, intentional or not.
Noor Behram remembers why he started on his mission to photograph the scenes of drone attacks in Pakistan. The reason was 12 dead people -- an entire family extinguished in what was officially a U.S. attack on militants.
Unsubstantiated identification of "terrorists" not only denies age-old principles of presumptive innocence, it defies the ability to differentiate the "good" guys from the "bad." Investigative work by journalist Noor Behram and lawyers like Shahzad Akbar reveals the truth about the U.S. drone campaign: that far more civilians are being injured or killed than your government is prepared to admit.

President Obama has assigned himself the power of targeted assassination. It is up to us, people living in this country, acting together with people around the world, to stand up, tell the truth, and say no.
