The Cause Behind This Poster Child Really Opened My Eyes. Powerful Stuff.

In military slang, predator drone operators often refer to kills as “bug splats”.

A group of artists want to change this and hopefully save some lives with #NotABugSplat, a project that  puts a face on the many innocent people killed as a result of these attacks.

This giant poster features a child victim of a drone attack in the bomb ridden region of Khyber Pukhtoonkhwa in Pakistan. Now, when this spot is seen through a drone camera, it’s not just a dot, but an image of a real child who lost both her parents and two young siblings in a drone attack.
