This inaugural post about anti-drone and pro-peace and human rights activity in Louisiana is dedicated to a modest proposal:
Louisiana World Peace Day:
A Perfect Day to Say a Loud "No!" to Drone Killings
Louisiana World Peace Day falls on Sunday, September 28, 2014. It will include an exhibit of Louisiana student artwork, an interfaith candle lighting ceremony, and student performers and presentations in Baton Rouge. (October 1, 2014, is World Peace Day in Louisiana legislative resolution and gubernatorial proclamation.)
Louisiana students are invited to take part in World Peace Day activities by submitting an entry describing World Peace and what it means to you. Submit your drawings, poems, songs, pictures, or videos. If chosen, your entry may be displayed at the State Capitol Building during the month of October. For more information see the Louisiana World Peace Day website.
In Chicago on Good Friday, 2013 (March 29), a cast consisting of long-time Chicago antiwar activists was joined by a NY playwright (and defendant in actions against US drone bases), Jack Gilroy, for one of the events kicking off a month-long campaign of anti-drones events across the country: a performance of Gilroy's play, The Predator.

April Days of Action Against Drones. Banners and signs galore colored the street around the courthouse, in the shadow of downtown Sacramento's high-rises, including a tapestry depicting children dead as a result of U.S. drone strikes.
