As global citizens who believe in justice and the rule of law, we oppose weaponized and surveillance drones because their deployment:

  • violates democratic rights of freedom of speech and assembly and the right not to be unreasonably searched,
  • is used for extrajudicial “targeted” killings based merely on suspicion — murders — even of children inside and outside of war zones,
  • terrorizes populations in targeted territories, thereby fueling hatred and increasing the cycle of violence,
  • lowers the threshold to war and initiates a new round in the arms race,
  • leads to the development of autonomous killer robots, thereby making even more horrifying wars likely.
