U.S. Drone Strikes in Afghanistan Are Morally Unacceptable, And Only Further the Cycle of Violence

Media statement from Pax Christi USA, in response to the U.S. drone strike in Kabul on Sunday, August 29:


“As The Washington Post and other media outlets report on the deaths of at least ten Afghan civilians — including young children — as a result of a second U.S. drone strike in Kabul, Pax Christi USA calls on the Biden Administration to cease the use of lethal drones. The death of civilians is not an unfortunate aberration; it is part and parcel of the normalized use of lethal weapons and morally unacceptable,” stated Johnny Zokovitch, Executive Director of Pax Christi USA.


“Such indiscriminate killing just furthers the cycle of violence, undermines real human security, and traumatizes survivors. What we are seeing now after twenty years of military occupation in Afghanistan should, at the very least, cause our leaders to pause and question to what end more arms, more bombs, and more death will lead.”

Commemorating the 76th Anniversary of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki Atomic Bombings

On Friday, August 6, 20 people gathered at the front gate of the newly-named Vandenberg Space Force Base (formerly Vandenberg Air Force Base) to commemorate the 76th anniversary of the criminal and immoral U.S. atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. We vigiled for nearly two hours, then closed with a prayer service led by Dennis Apel from our sister house in Guadalupe, CA. There were no arrests. Below are photos of the event.
