Piece-making Party for the Drones Quilt

Wed, May 7, 2014 4:00pm - 6:00pm
Syracuse Center for Peace and Social Justice - 2013 E Genesee St., Syracuse, NY 13210

The Syracuse Peace Council has been fortunate to be able to host the aone of the quilts from the Drones Quilt Project.

The idea for a Drones Quilt came from some women in the United Kingdom who started the project as a way to memorialize the victims of U.S. combat drones.  t Because there were many anti-drone activists in the U.S., the idea traveled across the Atlantic. The idea is to collectively create a piece of artwork which connects the names of activists with those killed.
