Pax Christi Anti-Drone Grassroots Task Force

The Pax Christi Anti-Drone Grassroots Task Force led by Pax Christi Metro DC-Baltimore has launched a petition calling on the US Government to put an end to the use of armed drones.

The appeal, which will also be featured in the in the National Catholic Reporter in August, reads: "We urge our fellow Catholics and the wider faith community to join us in calling for an immediate end to the use of armed drones. Write your elected officials, telling them to end drone warfare now!"

The Task Force is trying to get a least 300 signers. Bishop Gumbleton, Kathy Kelly and Marie Dennis are among the first “well-known” Catholics who have committed to signing this petition.
