The Watertown Citizens for Peace, Justice & the Environment will host the screening of a film about the United States Government’s use of drones from the perspective of those who worked in the program and those impacted by the drones on the ground.
Watertown Citizens sent out the following information:
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.
Plagued by PTSD and guilt over participating in the killing of thousands of faceless people, including children, three whistleblowers courageously decide to speak out publicly, despite possible severe consequences. The film also interviews people on the ground in Afghanistan whose families 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.
