Making Contact - Drones: A New Death From Above

It’s being sold as a cleaner way to wage war. But unmanned military drones are wreaking havoc in Pakistan, Afghanistan and elsewhere.  On this edition, we bring you voices from Pakistan of families destroyed by drone strikes.  And we hear from Medea Benjamin and other activists who are working to build a global movement against this controversial military technology.

Medea Benjamin, Code Pink founder; Sister Megan Rice, anti-nuclear activist; Pakistani drone attack survivors and their family members
