Medea Benjamin speaks at Busboys and Poets 5th & K
Friday, April 27th
6:00pm - 8:00pm
Medea Benjamin, co-founder of the peace group CODEPINK and the international human rights organization Global Exchange, discusses her new book Drone Warfare: Killing by Remote Control. Drone Warfare looks at the growing menace posed by the proliferation of drones for killing abroad and spying here at home. Right now, the military and the CIA have over 7,500 drones, over 50 countries have drones, and as soon as restrictions on domestic use are lifted in 2015, an estimated 30,000 will be flying in US airspace. Medea will address current issues and answer the "who, where, what, how" questions of drones.
