Medea Benjamin, co-founder of CodePink and Global Exchange speaks in Sacramento about drone warfare and her book, Drone Warfare: Killing by Remote Control.
Thursday, June 21, 2012, 7pm, Sierra Arden UCC, 890 Morse Ave, Sacramento (Morse & Northrup)
An international activist, Benjamin will discuss the growing menace of robotic warfare that has been used to murder hundreds of civilians in the Middle East and are now coming to U.S. police departments.
“It’s a way of waging war without putting U.S. lives at risk,” notes Benjamin. “It’s a way of waging war without letting the American people know we’re even at war. It’s a way of waging war that lets the CIA and other secret organizations have control—don’t even have to go to Congress. It’s a tremendous abuse of executive power. And it’s killing a lot of innocent civilians. And the American people need to know about it.”
