Smasher | 16.05.2012 21:03 | Smash EDO | Afghanistan | Anti-militarism | Palestine | South Coast | World

Thursday the 17th, 7.30pm at the Friends Meeting House, Ship Street, Brighton.

Public meeting with Chris Cole from Drone Wars UK.

Drone technology has changed the face of modern warfare.The CIA is currently launching attacks with unmanned fighter planes in Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia without ever announcing a state of war or setting foot on enemy soil. British forces have carried out over 200 drone attacks in Afghanistan. This inevitably leads to the cheapening of human life. EDO MBM manufactures ejector release units for drones while ITT Exelis provides the software and hardware for the drones camera system.

Chris Cole, of Drone Wars UK outlines where drones are being used, which companies are manufacturing them and how to resist.
