2:00 PM Refreshments with Swedish Nyckelharpa and Fiddle music by Toby Blome, Marilyn Jackson & friends
2:30 PM Presentation by Toby Blome
Last October, Toby Blome joined 33 other Americans on the CodePink Peace Delegation to Pakistan, to learn firsthand about the consequences of drone warfare in Pakistan and to
support the growing resistance to U.S. drone strikes. She will report on
first hand accounts about life under daily drone surveillance in Waziristan,
Pakistan, the civilians lost to hellfire missiles, the survivors’ stories, and
the many ways everyday life throughout Pakistan has been seriously altered by
the U.S. War on Terror.
Learn the full story of how Obama’s secret wars, using remotely controlled unmanned
planes to carry out illegal targeted killing, have caused significant
collateral damage and are ultimately counterproductive by inciting anti-American
rage and animosity.
Toby Blome, a physical therapist and former educator, is an organizer with the San Francisco chapter of CODEPINK, a women-led peace & social justice organization. She has been very involved in the drone warfare resistance movement in the U.S. since 2009.
