With a new administration in Washington it will be a challenge to get the 'liberals' to hold Biden-Harris to the few 'progressive promises' they made during their campaign. Biden is bringing back many of Bush & Obama's neo-cons to head his foreign policy. I'll be on this case without hesitation.

DRONE PROTEST IN UK



UAV Tactical Systems company based in Leicester, England which builds the Watchkeeper is in part set up by the Israeli company Elbit Systems. Elbit specializes in the manufacturing of electronic defence devices for the Israeli Army.

This action was held during the Global Network's annual Keep Space for Peace Week.

I lived in Leicester for nearly three years as a young boy. Living in England had a big impact on me. One of the women in the video, dancing with the banner (Anna Cheitham) once took me back to visit my old neighborhood. We were the only Americans living there so all of my mates were English. I tried to teach them baseball (which I failed at) but they got me playing soccer and cricket and singing carols door-to-door.
