Participating organizations in the Network to Stop Drone Surveillance and Warfare (NSDSW) are responding to
a call by activists nationwide for a follow-on campaign to the tremendously successful April Days of Action 2013.

CODEPINK, World Can't Wait, AFSC, Know Drones, No Drones Network, and others have conferred and recommend:

November Days of Action Against Drones 2013

To help build this campaign, please:

(1) Post your actions on the unified national list of anti-drones actions.

(2) Opt-in to become a participant in NSDSW.

(3) Use the NSDSW online organizing manual to develop your actions, and share it with others!


There has been extraordinary public opposition to war as a result of the Obama administration's proposal to attack Syria and continuing question over whether Congress will authorize it. This has focused public attention on the use of force and the cost of war.

The weeks ahead are a perfect time for coordinated effort against war of all kinds, including drone wars.

The fulcrum of the proposed November days will be the
Drones Around the Globe: Proliferation and Resistance” summit being held in Washington DC the weekend of November 16-17, 2013. Organized by CODEPINK, Institute for Policy Studies, The Nation Magazine, and National Lawyers Guild (Georgetown Chapter), coordinated actions will compliment and support the gathering.

* Friday, November 15: protests at General Atomics in Washington, DC. We are calling for actions around the country at other manufactures of drones.

* Saturday/Sunday, November 16/17: Drones Around the Globe: Proliferation and Resistance (Registration and Program)

* Monday, November 18: legislative push at Congressional offices in DC and in local districts.

Please share this call widely.

An expanded description of November Days of Action Against Drones activities will be distributed by October 1.
