Medea Benjamin, co-founder of CODEPINK, talks about her recent encounter with Egyptian police while trying to enter Gaza as well as her recent book, “Drone Warfare.” Medea is not only co-founder of both CODEPINK and the international human rights organization Global Exchange she is also the author of eight books. Her latest book is Drone Warfare: Killing by Remote Control, and she has been campaigning to stop the use of killer drones. Her direct questioning of President Obama during his 2013 foreign policy address, as well as her recent trips to Pakistan and Yemen, helped shine a light on the innocent people killed by US drone strikes.
Medea has also been on the forefront of the anti-drone movement. She recently published Drone Warfare: Killing by Remote Control. She also organized the first-ever international drone summit and lead delegations to Pakistan and Yemen to meet with drone strike victims and family members of Guantanamo Bay Prisoners.*
