In solidarity with the planned June 25th, 3rd monthly mass protest by tens of thousands of Pakistanis that have been demonstrating in different cities monthly since April, including holding sit-ins on NATO truck supply routes, and recent multiple surprise protests throughout Pakistan. They are expressing outrage over their government's complicity
with the U.S. "War on Terror" and drone assassination programs. It is estimated that 34,000 civilians have been killed by drone attacks and the U.S. War on Terror. In solidarity with the Pakistanis who are subjected to this violence we say ENOUGH!
Please join CodePink, Veterans for Peace, Peace Center of Nevada County, Military Families Speak Out and others.
Mark your calendars. Spread this around to all of your lists.
Bring 3 others with you. If you can't come for both days, come for one.
Let the Pakistanis know that their lives are as important as ours!

BackGround: Imran Khan & PTI (Movement for Justice) announced 3rd Sit-in Protest against US Drone Strikes in Multan, Pakistan on June 25th, 2011
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and Imran Khan announced 3rd Sit-in Protest againt US Drone Strikes in Multan, Pakistan on June 25th, 2011. PTI demands an end to illegal drone strikes that are killing thousands of innocent women & children civilians. These extrajudicial killings are against all International laws, with no arrest, no judge, no jury, no trail, no innocent until proven guilty, just dead.. based on mere suspicion. PTI & Imran Khan requests responsible citizens of this world to stand up against this injustice, as today US is killing suspected militants in Pakistan; but tomorrow any other country will follow suit, killing anywhere else and making this planet a law of jungle, where might makes right.

Please come forward to stand together with Imran Khan & PTI to protest these extrajudicial killings through US Drone Strikes, and to force US & Pakistani government to make a peaceful settlement on this war against terror through negotiations. With 10 years of ongoing war in Afghanistan & Pakistan, numerous civilians killings (34,000 civilians killed in Pakistan only since 9/11), economic disaster for both Pakistan & US and no end to this war in sight; Imran Khan & PTI demands change of strategy to bring peace to this shattered region, rather continuing counter-productive strategy of slaughtering innocent civilians through unmanned machines. Which will prove disastrous for both countries & will rise in radicalization of societies.
