When: Tuesday, May 13, 2014, 4:00 pm
Where: Walpole Public Library • 143 School St • Community Room • Walpole

The documentary film,  “Unmanned: America’s Drone Wars” will be shown. In this film from Brave New Films, director Robert Greenwald investigates the impact of U.S. drone strikes in Pakistan and elsewhere. The film highlights the stories of 16 year old Tariq Aziz, killed by a drone in 2011; and school teacher, Rafiq ur Rehamn, whose mother was killed and children hospitalized due to a drone strike in 2012. “Unmanned” includes more than 70 interviews. Prominent among these are a former American drone operator; Pakistani families of drone victims who are seeking legal redress; high ranking politicians and some of the military’s top brass, warning against blowback from the loss of innocent life. Following the film Eileen Kurkoski and Susan McLucas from the Eastern Massachusetts Anti-Drone Network will lead a discussion.  The presentation is sponsored by the Walpole Peace and Justice Group.  

The presentation is free and open to the public.  It’s important for people to learn what our government is doing in our name.
