Take a peek at the powerful #GameOfDrones Die-In at the Texas State Capitol organized by the University of Texas-Austin Amnesty USA chapter!

Check out these powerful photos from the #AmnestyUSA #GameOfDrones action on the University of Texas- Austin campus.

The University of Texas-Austin AmnestyUSA chapter was in the middle of organizing the #GameOfDrones Die-In in front of the Texas State Capitol when this lovely couple came up to us. At first we thought they were going to ask us to move so they could take wedding pictures but instead they asked about what we were doing and because of the passion of the Student Activists the newlyweds were so inspired they wanted to take part in our photo action. See now that’s how you do outreach. Great job UT-Austin Amnesty!

7 Actions You Can Take Today to Help Win Maximize the Amnesty USA Drone Report’s Impact

1) Tweet! Here’s a sample, but it’s better to put it in your own words. Use #drones or #GameOfDrones depending on space: Why was grandmother Mamana Bibi killed with a #drone? Pres Obama @WhiteHouse must answer amnestyusa.org/drones CC @SenFeinstein #drones

2) Sign the online action for Mamana Bibi to President Obama and Congress: www.amnestyusa.org/drones

3) Post http://dronespakistan.amnestyusa.org/ to Facebook with a personal message to your followers. Go to the Amnesty USA Facebook page to share our graphic: https://www.facebook.com/amnestyusa?ref=br_tf

4) Spread the word about AIUSA’s #GameOfDrones tour! Tour activism will be focussed on urging Congress to investigate the Mamana Bibi case and reign in President Obama’s #GameOfDrones. Check out the Tumblr for the latest news and photos www.amnestyusa.org/gameofdrones and check out the new Action Guide at amnestyusa.org/dronestoolkit.

5) Educate your friends, classmates and family: Organize a teach-in and discussion about this powerful short film on Mamana Bibi. http://bit.ly/GUfMXO. Use the event to gather more petition signers and build your Amnesty group. Email security@aiusa.org for help.

6) Lobby your elected officials to investigate the killings in the report:
If you have a Representative or Senator on the Armed Services or Intelligence Committees, please (1) call their office and say “I am your constituent and I want you to investigate the killing of Mamana Bibi and others documented in Amnesty International’s new report on US drone strikes in Pakistan” and (2) sign up for our in-district lobby effort by emailing security@aiusa.org.
To see if your Representative or two Senators are on the Armed Services or Intelligence Committees, please go to www.congress.gov.

"Will I be Next?" US Drone Strikes in Pakistan

View Report Here:

http://www.amnestyusa.org/research/reports/will-i-be-next-us-drone-strikes-in-pakistan

Amnesty International calls on the USA to comply with its obligations under international law to ensure thorough, impartial, and independent investigations are conducted into the killings documented in this report. The USA should make public information it has about all drone strikes carried out in Pakistan. The US authorities should investigate all reports of civilian casualties from drone strikes. Where there is sufficient admissible evidence that individuals may be responsible for an unlawful killing or other serious human rights violation, the authorities must ensure they are brought to justice in fair trials without recourse to the death penalty. Victims of violations must be provided with compensation and meaningful access to full reparation including restitution, rehabilitation, satisfaction and guarantees of non-repetition.
