2014 Grassroots Community Fair at Hunter College

Share

Tuesday, March 18 at the Hunter Grassroots Community Fair:

The Granny Peace Brigade came to the fair to ask Hunter students for help. We would like the New York City Council to pass a resolution banning weaponized and surveillance drones in NYC. How will that happen? If many, many voters call their City Council representatives asking for drone-control legislation we just might get a law passed. (Click on photos for larger images.)

As students stopped by we gave out flyers and FAQ sheets…

Here’s what we asked them to do:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Go to http://council.nyc.gov/html/members/members.shtml
Type in your address and borough.
Your council person will appear along with contact info.
Get the phone number and make a call.
Identify yourself as a constituent,
and say that you want your councilperson to support a resolution banning weaponized and surveillance drones in NYC.

One thought on “2014 Grassroots Community Fair at Hunter College”

  1. Interesting event! Interaction with students and some professors was promising regarding calls to City Council Member representatives. Much work to be done to protect NYC folks and those being targeted and killed by drones world-over!
