For the record, Press Release sent out yesterday around midday — NO DRONE DEMONSTRATIONS CANCELLED! SATURDAY SUMMIT WILL BE HELD.
Due to the wildfire situation and the County-wide emergency, we are canceling:

–Today’s demonstration at the Federal Building and tonight’s Overpass Light Brigade Action (5/15/14)
–Friday’s demonstration at Northrop Grumman (5/16/14)
WE WILL STILL HOLD THE NO DRONES CONVERGENCE/SUMMIT ON SATURDAY (5/17/14), 9:30 A.M. TO 2 P.M. AT THE FIRST CHURCH OF THE BRETHREN, 3850 Westgate Place, SD 92015. We hope you will attend this summit and help us plan a rescheduling of the demonstration, as well as help plan future events.
We will be rescheduling the demonstrations. Unfortunately we have been overcome by events and feel it would be ineffective and insensitive to hold the demos while our community’s attention is elsewhere.

We hope for an end to the fires and send our sympathies to those who have lost their homes and our deep respect and appreciation to our firefighters and other emergency services.
