Military Vets Sponsor 'Uncensored' Counter U.S. Drone War TV Commercial on CNN, FoxNews, ESPN Near Cannon AFB/Special Ops Drone Control Center in Clovis, New Mexico

CLOVIS, NM - A graphic and controversial 15-second television commercial – showing images of children killed in drone attacks – began airing in July uncensored in Clovis, NM near Cannon AFB, a major U.S. drone control site. The spot has been censored or modified by cable providers near other U.S. drone control centers where it has run over the past few months.

CNN, FoxNews, ESPN and other cable networks locally are carrying the uncensored spot throughout July.

This is good news--Vets for Peace is a very fine group of citizens willing to go forward with their own experience of bloody and unjust war to try to promote dialogue and justice rather than occupation and death. The group in my area of Lehigh Valley, PA sets up a Memorial Day display each year of all the PA veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan service who have been killed. They have constructed moveable grave markers, with names and places, dates of death. It is set up in one of our biggest and most used city parks at a busy intersection, seen and visited by locals. I always go, walk down the lines of markers, and read each name of the hundreds who died from PA. I help take it down at end of day. And there is a continuing last Saturday of the month demonstration in Horsham, Pa (by Philly), in front of the Air Force base, against the coming drone command center there. It is organized by the local Quaker and assorted Peace activists from all around the area.
