Medea Benjamin will speak in San Jose on Monday, June 25, 7pm at St. Paul's United Methodist Church. 405 S. 10th St. (corner of 10th and San Salvador). Her new book is Drone Warfare: Killing by Remote Control.

The book is a comprehensive look at how drones are being used to assassinate people around the world, about the legal and moral implications, and how to build a movement to rein in the drones. It also looks at how drones are coming to local police departments and what that means for our privacy rights.

Medea Benjamin is a cofounder of both Code Pink and the international human rights organization Global Exchange. She has been an advocate for social justice for more than 30 years. Described as "one of America’s most committed -- and most effective -- fighters for human rights" by New York Newsday, and called "one of the high profile leaders of the peace movement" by the Los Angeles Times, Medea has distinguished herself as an eloquent and energetic figure in the progressive movement.

Sponsored by San Jose Peace & Justice Center, St. Paul's United Methodist Church, and San Jose Code Pink.
