Culture Project in partnership with CODEPINK presents
Blueprint for Accountability: Drone Warfare
Monday, October 29
Culture Project (45 Bleecker Street, New York City)
Join activist, journalist, and co-founder of CODEPINK, Medea Benjamin, just back from the Pashtun territories in Pakistan where she traveled with families of Drone victims and Imran Kahn, for an in-depth conversation and Q&A about her latest book, Drone Warfare: Killing by Remote Control. The presentation will begin with Things We Make, a powerful theatrical exploration of drone warfare directed by Shana Solomon and a presentation ofThe US Peace Memorial Foundation 2012 Peace Prize. There will be a book signing with Medea Benjamin in the lobby following the conversation.
Medea Benjamin visited Afghanistan just weeks after the 2002 American invasion. There, on the ground, talking with victims of the strikes, she learned the reality behind the “precision bombs” on which U.S. forces were becoming increasingly reliant. Drone Warfare 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 are the victims and what are the legal and moral implications.
