Title: Drone Warfare: Killing by Remote Control
START DATE: Thursday June 21
TIME: 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Location Details:
Sierra Arden United Church of Christ, 890 Morse Ave, Sacramento (Morse & Northrup).
Event Type: Speaker
Medea Benjamin, co-founder of CodePink and Global Exchange speaks on how drones, now coming to your local police department, are being used to assassinate people around the world. Using drones, Benjamin says, is “a way of waging war without putting U.S. lives at risk. 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.” Doors open 6:30 for browsing tables & refreshments. Sliding scale donation. FMI including about shuttle from Manlove/Watt light rail: 916-448-1757; sacpeace [at] dcn.org
