The US is not at war with Pakistan.
Yet, U.S. DRONE ATTACKS KILL uncountable numbers of people
in the northern part of Pakistan every year
- most of them CIVILIANS.
Ithacans, Daniel Joseph Burns and James Ricks are traveling to Pakistan as part of a humanitarian delegation to meet with the victims of drone attacks and to hear their stories. They will be in Pakistan from October 3-10, 2012, with a group led by CodePink co-founder Medea Benjamin, author of Drone Warfare: Killing by Remote Control and facilitated by Shahzad Akbar of the Pakistani NGO, The Foundation For Fundamental Rights in Pakistan. The group will also participate in a massive march and rally in opposition to US Drone Strikes in Pakistan.
