Medea Benjamin is the co-founder of CODE PINK and Global Exchange. She has been an activist for human rights and peace for many years, and has recently authored a book called “Drone Warfare: Killing by Remote Control”. She will present on who controls these drones, where they are being used and the legal and moral implications of drone warfare by the US government, drawing from her recently published book “Drone Warfare: Killing by Remote Control”. Her presentation will also cover what activists are doing to stop the killing by remote control. This is sponsored by Swannanoa Valley Peace & Social Concerns of Swannanoa Valley Friends Meeting, the Peace & Earth Committee of Asheville Friends Meeting, and Veteran for Peace Chapter 099.
