Medea Benjamin

Presented by St. Pete for Peace

Spend an evening with Medea Benjamin as she discusses her book, "Drone Warfare: Killing By Remote Control" on Wednesday August 22, 2012.  The evening, sponsored by St. Pete for Peace, will include live music, a raffle and more beginning at 7:00 PM.  Tickets are $7 in advance or $10 at the door (No one turned away for lack of funds).

Medea Benjamin is co-founder of Global Exchange & CODEPINK: Women for Peace. Described as "one of America’s most committed -- and most effective -- fighters for human rights" by Newsday, and called "one of the high profile leaders of the peace movement" by the Los Angeles Times, Medea has distinguished herself as an eloquent and energetic figure in the progressive movement. In 2005 she was one of 1,000 exemplary women from 140 countries nominated to receive the Nobel Peace Prize on behalf of the millions of women who do the essential work of peace worldwide.

“In this remarkably cogent and carefully researched book, Medea Benjamin makes it clear that drones are not just another high-tech military trinket. Drone Warfare sketches out the nightmare possibilities posed by this insane proliferation.” ­Barbara Ehrenreich
