American activists to visit Yemen to assess impact of drones

A seven-member delegation is scheduled to travel to Yemen on Tuesday to meet with the families of drones' victims, as to assess the impact America's war on terror is having on civilian population and Gitmo's relatives.
The visit will last just over a week confirmed the delegation of activists, stressing the visit will be "based on diplomacy and adherence to international law, not drone strikes and indefinite detentions."
“We are traveling to Yemen as citizen diplomats to show the people there that not all Americans support these policies of terror and assassination, and we know that peace cannot be achieved by dropping Hellfire missiles from Predator drones,” the delegation said in a statement.
The activists are part of an U.S. anti-war group called Code Pink.
Code Pink, also know as Women for Peace, is an NGO, that describes itself as a "grassroots peace and social justice movement working to end U.S. funded wars and occupations, to challenge militarism globally, and to redirect our resources into health care, education, green jobs and other life-affirming activities". It is primarily focused on anti-war issues, but has also taken positions on gun control, social justice, Palestinian statehood, green jobs and health care issues.
The group's visit comes amid a growing civil movement in Yemen calling for the return of all Gitmo detainees and a re-assessment of the country's counter-terror strategy. As drones continue to claim civilians lives, rights activists have argued the end does no longer justifies the means, not in the light of so much destruction and death.
