Fri Jul 20 2012 (Updated 07/26/12) Medea Benjamin on Her New Book "Drone Warfare: Killing By Remote Control"
Medea Benjamin on Her New Book "Drone Warfare: Killing By Remote Control" On July 20th, George Cadman interviewed Medea Benjamin about her new book "Drone Warfare: Killing By Remote Control," which is "a comprehensive look at the growing menace of robotic warfare, with an extensive analysis of who is producing the drones, where they are being used, who 'pilots' these unmanned planes, who the victims are and what some of the legal and moral implications are." Benjamin's book also looks at what activists, lawyers and scientists are doing to ground the drones, and ways to move forward.

Cadman and Benjamin also discussed the loss of lives from the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), as well as some of the ethical, legal and financial costs of the increasing use of drones.

Medea Benjamin spoke about her book, as well as ways that people can get organized in opposing the use of drones for military and surveillance purposes, at Bookshop Santa Cruz on Monday, July 23rd at 7:30 p.m.
