The Interfaith Peace Network of WNY is proud and honored to endorse the vitally important Ban Killer Drones Campaign. Weaponized surveillance drones terrorize whole communities by their very presence, and couldn’t be more antithetical to the Culture of Peace and Justice that the Interfaith Peace Network strives to help establish. The assassinations that take place, and the lies and faulty assumptions used to justify hem and the 9 to 1 “collateral damage” – killing of innocent people, including children, near a presumed target – geometrically increase violence through the “blow-back” or the reactions of family, friends, and communities of the innocent victims. These executions by drone must be stopped, and we must use the Tools of Peace – communication and cooperation – to establish peace in the world. The world must come together to work on the common good for People and the Planet, as our very survival is in jeopardy. Let’s Ban Killer Drones and work for a Culture of Justice and Peace.

I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. That is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant. – Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
