In an action organized by the Eastern Massaschusetts Anti- Drone Network, representatives from Veterans for Peace, the United National Antiwar Coalition (UNAC) and other groups came to MIT on Tuesday, 5/6 to call attention to the university's complicity with lethal applications of drone technology in a demonstration themed "The Pentagon on the Charles." A full report can be heard here.

by the Obama administration in the place of true transparency
regarding the innocent people murdered by drone strikes.
An MIT alumna who passed by the protest said: "If I had known I would be there with them...to me the whole drone story is so cruel...from what I've heard they're actually fueling hate instead of [protecting us]...it's revolting to me that anyone could accept to do that, just kill people from a room somewhere as if they're nonhuman."
Demonstrators also took the time to read the names of the many people killed around the world by U.S. drone strikes, many children and many if not most completely innocent of wrongdoing.
