From A Woman's Point of View | Listen to this entire show:

Medea Benjamin who co-founded both Code Pink and Global Exchange discussed the recent protest she attended in Chicago with the NATO meetings. She gave a synopsis of what happened in both the inside of the conference and the outside.With her long time involvement in activist causes and peace demonstrations, she gave a very insightful analysis. We then discussed her latest book DRONE WARFARE with a forward by Barbara Erenhreich. Medea believes that that we were all aware that we had turned a very dangerous new page in warfare with the explosions of the nuclear weapons in Hiroshima and Nagasaki but not as aware of just as serious of a shift in warfare with the use of drones-in her opinion drones make warfare more remote and somehow does not get the scrutiny of the more conventional symbols of war. Out of sight-out of mind-and even easier to commit to war. Code Pink DRONE WARFARE-with a forward by Barbara Erhenreich
