Weaponized Drone Ban Treaty
The Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration endorses the Campaign for a Weaponized Drone Ban Treaty. True to our Franciscan calling, we commit ourselves to building Christ's Kingdom of justice and peace. We continue our efforts to preserve and nurture God's creation, to increase social and global consciousness, to educate ourselves to political awareness, and to encourage action to effect change where necessary.
We urge the UN General Assembly, UN Human Rights Council, and relevant United Nations committees to immediately investigate violations of International Law and human rights by state and non-state actors perpetrating aerial drone attacks.
In peace and solidarity,
Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration
