Remembering the Victims: #NATOvictims

Above, one of the victims of US drones in Pakistan.

We are inviting people everywhere to contribute the names of victims of NATO violence, using the hashtag #NATOvictims. We will recite the names as part of a Memorial for the Victims of US/NATO Wars on May 21, the second day of the NATO Summit. Stay tuned for more details of the event -- to be released shortly.

Here are some examples of the kinds of stories we want to focus on and draw attention to - as the war criminals with NATO meet behind locked doors, we will commemorate their victims and pledge that their humanity will never be forgotten.

World Can't Wait mobilizes people living in the United States to stand up and stop war on the world, repression and torture carried out by the US government.
