Stop the Drone War Command Center at Horsham Air Guard Station, in Horsham, Montgomery County, PA

Joining events on the same day in places as diverse as Iowa and California, there will be a demonstration on Friday, March 14 from 4p.m.- 5p.m. Demonstrators will hold banners and signs and distribute leaflets outside of the Bellevue hotel (200 S Broad St, Phila.), where the SE PA office of Governor Corbett is located. We will demand that, in his capacity as the head of the PA Air National Guard, Governor Corbett pull the plug on the Drone War Command Center planned for Horsham Air National Guard base outside the city. Bring whistles and other noisemakers that will get Gov. Corbett's attention.
Yo, Gov. Corbett! Pull the Plug on the Drone War Command
Not In Our Backyard (or anyone else's)!

These Philadelphia demonstrations, on the second Sunday of every month, alternate in location between the Bellevue Hotel and the SEPTA entrance at 15th & Market St.

The last Saturday demonstrations at the Horsham Air Guard Station (Rte 611/Easton & County Line Roads, Horsham, PA) will resume on Saturday, 3/29.

Successful vigil against drone death on 3/1 in Philadelphia

A silent death walk and anti-drone vigil took place outside of the Philadelphia Convention Center last Saturday, during a well-attended flower show. Members of the Resister Sisters of Philadelphia, along with others, came out wearing black clothing and white masks to bear witness to extrajudicial drone killing happening now in Pakistan, Yemen, and many other countries. Such killing will soon be directed in part from the Horsham Air Guard Station near Philadelphia. 
STOP U.S. Drones. They Kill Innocent Civilians

Visitors to the flower show were greeted by
 eerie white faces arrayed against the walls

"Drones are controlled by human operators", a fact that belies the claims that drones are a sterile or clean method of killing.
Educating the public with some harsh truths.
This event was part of a tradition of First Saturday Vigils against drones in Philadelphia. Visit Brandywine Peace Action Community  or e-mail Marge Van Cleef at for more information about future such events, including regular demonstrations at Horsham Air Guard Station
