A new form of warfare is creeping into skies around the world. From Pakistan to Yemen, from Somalia to the Southern Boarder, the United States is now using unmanned drones to spy on and often kill people around the planet. But what is the cost of using killer robots in both money and innocent lives? And what domestic and international laws are violated when a country kills people who have committed no crime, and have not been convicted in any court. Anti-War activist Madea Benjamin has researched these drones, who builds them, who operates them, who the targets are, and who orders the attacks. On September 17th, 2012, Ms. Benjamin spoke in Decatur, Ga. about the history, and more importantly, the future, of America's unmanned drones program around the world and here at home. This film runs 67 minutes.

She spoke about the issue of drone proliferation by the United States and other countries in Decatur Ga. on September 17th, 2012. Prior to her public speech at the Decatur Quaker Meeting House, she spoke to Atlanta Independent Media Center about the increased use of killer drones by the U.S. in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen and Somalia. She also talked about the desire of domestic law enforcement to start flying drones in U.S. airspace. Her message is simple, the time is now to pass laws to ban these new weapons internationally, and to prevent their use at home before there are drones flying in a sky near you.
