Why is our government killing thousands of people around the globe they can’t even identify?

See National Bird, a film about the secret US drone assassination program.

Directed by Sonia Kennebeck, this powerful documentary follows the dramatic journey of three whistleblowers who are determined to break the silence around one of the most controversial issues of our time: the hidden U.S. drone war, which has escalated substantially under President Trump.

The film also interviews people on the ground in Afghanistan whose families and lives have been shattered by the deaths and lost futures of those who have been injured and terrorized by drones.Plagued by PTSD and guilt over participating in the killing of thousands of faceless people, including children, they courageously decide to speak out publicly, despite the possible severe consequences.

 After the film there will be a short discussion with suggestions of things we can do to stop this immoral and indefensible form of warfare.
