The Queen’s Foundation for Ecumenical Theological Education, Friends of Sabeel and Pax Christi are organising an act of worship for 50 minutes outside UAV Engines Ltd, Lynn Lane, Shenstone, Lichfield, Staffs, WS14 0DT at 2.30 on Wed 12th Feb. Meet in Shenstone Railway Station car park at 2.15pm. Hilary McCosh said
“We are calling this an ‘act of worship’ rather than a ‘vigil’. Please be assured that this does not represent a significant change in what will happen on the day. As usual there will be different elements that will hopefully allow everyone to take part at some point. If you feel you cannot or do not wish to take part in the worship we would still welcome you to come and stand side by side with us to witness against the manufacture of engines for ‘drones’ used in warfare.”
UAV Engines are owned by Elbit of Israel. Drone Wars UK have just published a report entitled ‘Israel and the Drone Wars’.
