Call To End US Drone Warfare via Ramstein In Solidarity with Drone Victims and the German People

ramstein_map_v5All lethal US drone strikes are guided via the Satellite Relay Station located on the US Air Force Base Ramstein in Germany. More than 10,000 people worldwide have been killed by these drone strikes. The bin Ali Jaber family lost two of its members through a drone strike in Hadramout in Yemen. Now Reprieve and the European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights (ECCHR) have filed a lawsuit against the German government in a German court on behalf of the bin Ali Jaber family. The suit demands that the German government “take legal and political responsibility for the US drone war in Yemen” and “forbid use of the Satellite Relay Station in Ramstein.”
