[Stolen from Joe Scarry’s Scarry Thoughts.]
I just returned from Washington, D.C., where I attended Code Pink’s Drone Summit: Killing and Spying by Remote Control.
Two days were packed with comprehensive information presentations and planning sessions for activists.
At the end of the first day, I came to a realization: the fundamental problem that we had all gathered to address is that drones render killing 100% invisible. And as long as the killing is invisible, we lose the most powerful tool we have for fighting the killing: the disgust and outrage of the general public.
But recognizing the problem is the first step in being clear about the solution. If drones render killing 100% invisible, WE must find a way to make drone killing 100% VISIBLE.
Drone killing: 100% visible. We now know what we need to do. The rest is just implementation.
