There are not many photos of the drone victims available for a number of reasons. Most of these drone attacks take place in remote locations. People living in these areas often don't have many photos of loved ones they can readily share after they have been killed. Maybe worst of all, journalists and rescuers are often deterred from visiting recent drone attack sites by the possibility of a second "double tap" drone strike.
This list was compiled for reading at anti-drone protests during the Spring Days of Action to End U.S. Drone Killing & Surveillance.

A live program & international webcast in support of the Spring Days of Action – 2014, a coordinated campaign in April and May to End Drone Killing, Drone Surveillance and Global Militarization.
A Coordinated Campaign April & May 2014
We live in a country whose government assassinates thousands with drones.
A spreading “war on terror” from Iraq and Afghanistan, to Yemen, Pakistan, Somalia, Libya, the Philippines and now Mali, is being conducted by the U.S. in violation of borders and international law. The Bureau of Investigative Journalism has documented the deaths of hundreds of children by Hellfire missiles fired from American drones circling high in the sky.
We in the US have a government that relies on terror and repression to maintain its rule, here and around the world. We live in a country whose government assassinates thousands with drones. Our government, driven by the relentless pursuit of profit, is plundering the earth, exploiting humanity, and imperiling our planet's very viability. This government tortures people while holding them indefinitely without trial and uses warrantless surveillance over all of us to try to identify those who might pose a threat to their agenda.
MASS SURVEILLANCE on whole populations, chilling protest and dissent here is used by the U.S. government to enforce world-wide, systematic wars of aggression, unjust occupations, and “dirty” wars of targeted killing and secret ops.
October 2001: U.S. Invaded Afghanistan
No War on Syria
STOP 12 YEARS OF U.S. WAR
For twelve years, the US has made war on the people of Afghanistan, selling the war to us with the lie of ending "terrorism" and "protecting" people in Afghanistan from Islamic fundamentalism. The reality is that from the beginning the war in Afghanistan was a war for empire spreading U.S. domination of the Middle East. Waged under the banner of the "war on terror," it has meant dire consequences for the people.

Barack Obama is selling the planned US bombing of Syria as a “humanitarian” act in response to a chemical weapons attack on civilians.
Bombing Syria will kill more civilians and invite even more intervention and weapons into the country, making it more likely that the civil war could expand into an extremely dangerous regional conflagration.
The Leaked Footage Private Manning was Sent to Prison For
Collateral Murder is the military’s own video of 12 Iraqis being shot and killed from a U.S. helicopter circling above in 2007. It records the wanton slaughter of people walking down the street, as well a completely unwarranted attack on a vehicle with children in it.
No one has been charged in connection with these killings. However, Bradley (now known as Chelsea) Manning was sent to prison for 35 years for making this incriminating video public via Wikileaks. World Can’t Wait is distributing copies of this harrowing video so that many more people in the U.S. see what is being done in their names. Instructions on how to do public showings on the street are also available.
Request a DVD copy of Collateral Murder Collateral Murder (also includes the Afghanistan War Diary) at worldcantwait.net and show others what Bradley Manning wanted people to see.

IN 2002, the Bush regime set up a primitive prison camp at a U.S. base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Several hundred men were subjected to “enhanced interrogation”, what the rest of the world calls torture. Most had been turned in for $5,000 cash bounties the U.S. paid, and had no connection to attacks on the U.S. 157 haven't ever been charged and 86 were cleared for release years ago.
Obama has the power to release the 86 cleared, but has not. Congress has legislated to block Guantanamo’s closure; federal courts have blocked prisoners’ rights to sue, and denied their petitions for habeas corpus. The few that have been charged will not be tried because the abuse and torture they suffered at government hands would be revealed.
Prisoners are desperately trying to get the world’s attention by refusing to eat, some of them since early February 2013. The hunger strike has grown to 130 men. The media is no longer ignoring it. Obama had to address it in a recent press conference. He said Guantanamo hurts America’s standing and doesn’t keep America safe and never mentioned the immense suffering these men have endured. Obama said he would need to go back to Congress with the issue.
166 men remain imprisoned at Guantananamo Bay.
157 haven’t been charged and 86 have been cleared for release.
May 17-19 Global Days of Action Mark 100 Days of Hunger Strike
The truth is that Obama could close Guantanamo today and doesn’t need Congress . The otherwise dangerous National Defense Authorization Act includes waiver provisions that give the Obama Administration the legal authority to transfer detainees from Guantánamo. Obama justified force feeding, a brutal procedure in which a tube is shoved into the nose and liquids are pumped down the throat while prisoners are strapped down in a chair. The United Nations Human Rights Commission, The World Medical Association, and the American Medical Association denounce force feeding as torture and/or unethical.
One thing is clear to people of conscience and that is Obama must close Guantanamo now! We must do what we can to create a political situation where Obama releases the cleared prisoners and closes Guantanamo. It was always wrong and no government should be able to do such things.
The Network for Stopping Drone Spying and Warfare plans April Days of Action 2013 to generate a public uprising across the United States to stop drone spying and drone warfare.
We urge you to select one or more of the days in April listed below to organize actions in your community to focus on the institutions which are part of the massive army of drones in the U.S. war on the world. People around the U.S. are urged to learn more, speak out, and act in visible protest of:
April 4 – 6: Drone Manufacturers Identify and protest drone manufacturing facilities, using demonstrations, teach-ins and other actions calling for an end to drone attacks and an end to the manufacture of weaponized and surveillance drones.
