“National Bird” (film screening)
October 10, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Why is our government killing thousands of people around the globe they can’t even identify?
See National Bird, a film directed by Sonia Kennebeck about the secret US drone assassination program, through the eyes of three whistleblowers.
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.
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.
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.
