Living Under Drones!11.24.12

OpEdNews, Saturday, October 24, 2012

By Chris Robinson.  

http://www.opednews.com/articles/Living-Under-Drones-by-Chris-Robinson-121123-768.html

On November 19, more than 100 people participated in “Living under Drones! Report from Pakistan,” on the University of Pennsylvania (UofP) campus. This event was initiated by Philly Against War, www.phillyagainstwar.org , and the Penn Pakistan Society, www.dolphin.upenn.edu/paksoc/ .

The participants gathered in Steinberg Hall-Dietrich Hall at the Wharton School to hear a first-hand report by the U.S. anti-war/anti-drone delegation which recently returned from Pakistan. Penn Pakistan Society member Maheen Sheikh served as host and explained that the use of drones has cast a question mark over the morality of President Barak Obama’s actions abroad. Sheikh also explained the importance of good relations with Pakistan for the security of the U.S.

Dr. Claire Finkelstein, professor of law and philosophy at UofP, then explained how the regular practice of assassination by drones has caused a legal and moral paradox, especially since Obama’s justifications for those assassinations have been held in secret. Finkelstein is the editor of Targeted Killings (Oxford, 2012). (more…)

GREEN NIGHT OUT: How to End Fracking11.18.12

GREEN NIGHT OUT: How to End Fracking

 

www.opednews.com/articles/How-to-End-Fracking-by-Chris-Robinson-121116-845.html

At Green Night Out on November 10, Sam Bernhardt, led a discussion about “How to End Fracking.” Bernhardt is an organizer for Food and Water Watch, www.foodandwaterwatch.org, in Pennsylvania. Fracking (hydraulic fracturing to release gas from shale rock) is inherently unsafe, according to Bernhardt, and citizens cannot rely on state officials to protect the water, air and public health. “Fracking can’t be made safer through government oversight or regulations,” said Bernhardt. “An all out ban on fracking is the only way to protect our communities.”

Right now, Bernhardt is working to expose the way PA Governor Tom Corbett has overreached to make gas drilling easier for the gas companies. He does not believe that most Pennsylvania residents will agree with the extremism of Corbett opening state college campuses and state forests for gas-drilling. Bernhardt also thinks that most people in our Commonwealth will object to Corbett deleting information from lab reports to people who have had their well water tested for toxic contaminants. (more…)
