Medea Benjamin, activist, author and cofounder of CODEPINK: Women for Peace  will be introduced by Jodie Evans who will moderate a public conversation on the use of drones by federal and local governments. The LAPD is debating the drone issue, join Medea Benjamin and local community leaders to stop drones in LA.
Did you know that a drone can be as small as a bumble bee, that local law enforcement offices are eager to be the first to have their own fleet of drones here in the US and that Obama has granted the CIA the authority to kill people in Pakistan and Yemen using drone "signature strikes" based solely on suspicious behavior?
Medea Benjamin's new book Drone Warfare, Killing by Remote Control is a well-researched investigation of these deadly weapons and how we can build a movement to stop them. Come hear Medea speak. Read a review.
