World Can't Wait needs a drone!


Drone warfare is the U.S.'s "weapon of choice."

Hawai`i is one of the states designated to base drones being used for drone warfare against the people of Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen, Somalia and Libya

 Two bases have already been named: Wheeler and Kaneohe Marine Corps Air Station.

 Hawai`i's Colleen Hanabusa is one of 50 members of the government's "drone caucus," which promotes the use of drone warfare.

So we think the Hawai`i Chapter of World Can't Wait should have a drone! Won't you help us buy one?

The drone we want to purchase is a replica of the Reaper Drone, which is used to drop 500-lb bombs. It is about 20% the size of a Reaper and can be displayed easily above a sidewalk. Check out the video about demonstrating with the drone in front of the New York Art Museum: drone video.

Other World Can't Wait chapters have already been using drones. They were at the Democratic National Convention, outside of presidential debates, and on the shores of Lake Michigan in Chicago. Photographs of the drones have appeared in news media around the world. Check out

This replica of the drone will be an invaluable visual form of protest! Think about its impact in the MLK Day Parade, or outside of the K-Bay gate, or even on Waikiki Beach!

Once we have the drone we'll also become part of the No Drones network, a growing network of activists across the U.S. who are opposing drone warfare. Check out the network at:  

We need 40 people to send us $10 each to bring the drone to Honolulu! Or 20 people sending $20! Make out your check to "World Can't Wait Hawaii" and write "drones" on the memo line.  Send it to:
