3:30 - 4:30 PM: Peace vigil Davis-Monthan AFB Ban the Drones

Why protest at Davis-Monthan AFB? DRONES: Air National Guard troops at Davis-Monthan AFB place Tucson squarely on the global battleground, by remotely piloting UAV's (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) that are firing guided bombs and missiles and killing more civilians than targeted "terrorists" in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Pakistan and possibly more sovereign nations. Ground the Drones!

DEPLETED URANIUM: A-10 warplanes that train out of Davis-Monthan AFB are responsible for the vast majority of radioactive ammunition - estimated at well over 400 tons - used in Iraq since 1991. A recent analysis of targeting data reveals that the toxic ammo was used well beyond its armor-piercing design, and has been used again in Syria in current military operations against ISIS. Iraq is littered with high levels of nuclear and dioxin contamination, including depleted uranium, resulting in greater rates of cancer and birth defects near sites. See https://www.theguardian.com/world/2010/jan/22/iraq-nuclear-contaminated-sites. Park at recreation field parking lot at N-W corner of Craycroft & Golf Links with access from Craycroft.
