Over the last few weeks CODEPINK and others across the world have been in the streets almost every day protesting the Israeli massacre in Gaza, in which over 1,400 people have been killed and thousands more injured.
The LAPD is debating the Drone issue. Local law enforcement offices are eager to be the first to have their own fleet of drones here in the US and that Obama has granted the CIA the authority to kill people in Pakistan and Yemen using drone “signature strikes” based solely on suspicious behavior?
Medea Benjamin’s new book: Drone Warfare, Killing by Remote Control is a well-researched investigation of these deadly weapons and how we can build a movement to stop them. Come hear Medea speak!
The evening of conversation and inspiration will be hosted by Jodie Evans, co-founder of CODEPINK.

This is an invitation to change everything.
In September, world leaders are coming to New York City for a historic summit on climate change. With our future on the line and the whole world watching, we’ll take a stand to bend the course of history.
Together, we’ll take to the streets to demand the world we know is within our reach: a world with an economy that works for people and the planet. A world safe from the ravages of climate change. A world with good jobs, clean air, and healthy communities for everyone.
To change everything, we need everyone on board. September 20-21 in New York City. Join us.
