Anti-Drone Demonstration at White House

CodePINK, Women for Peace co-founder Medea Benjamin and other anti-war activists protested at the White House on June 1, 2012 against the use of drones for military assassinations. For one hour, the activists presented a theatrical display including a “Kill List” to show that drones kill innocent people, including women and children, as well as the intended target, an unacceptable outcome according to Ms. Benjamin. CodePINK grew from a grassroots women’s vigil in front of the White House from November 2002 to the start of the Iraq war in March 2003, to an ongoing peace and social justice movement known for creative protest and non-violent direct action. Ms. Benjamin wrote the book, “Drone Warfare: Killing by Remote Control” in 2011.
