Drones and Warfare

Event Info





American Friends Service Committee

This event will be recorded for WBEZ’s Chicago Amplified.

American Friends Service Committee and Chicago Area Peace Action will co-sponsor an event with Robert Namain, the policy director for Just Foreign Policy, who will talk about his recent trip to Pakistan and on the policy of targeted assassination and drone warfare. This is a subject very pertinent to current foreign policy: the U.S. has pointed to the use of drones as a way to save money and U.S. lives, but it has terrible moral implications, as the many civilian deaths in Afghanistan and Pakistan have made clear. AFSC and Peace Action will be embarking upon a national campaign to end use of drones, and this is an excellent opportunity to hear eyewitness testimony and expert analysis before joining these efforts.
