Joyce Beers Monthly Event - Film & Talk "Attack of the Drones"

Dave Patterson, past president of The San Diego Veterans for Peace (SDVFP) and SDVFP anti-drone coordinator, will address the urgent need for all Americans to learn about the unprecedented proliferation of drone technology.

Dave will discuss how drones are being used domestically by the "Police State" and internationally by military and civilian intelligence agencies. You will learn how your livelihood, security, and privacy are at risk, and how community activists are demanding oversight.

Attack of the Drones, a 25-minute documentary made in 2012, will be shown. This documentary shows the U.S. Government's growing reliance on aerial drones to pursue its war on al-Qaeda and the Taliban in Yemen, Afghanistan, and elsewhere is proving controversial-as evidenced by the international reaction to recent drone missile attacks along the border with Pakistan. You'll see "the big computer game" with "desk pilots" sitting in air-conditioned bunkers far from the battlefield can kill enemy fighters and then go home to their families, remote from the human consequences of their actions or the anguish of associated civilian casualties.

After the presentation and documentary, there will be a general discussion.

    Join SEEKLIGHT as we take a journey to the Dark Side. This dark force (like Star Wars), which appears to have been controlling humanity forever, has operated in but ONE season in the "Great Year" of our Sun -WINTER. Understand the reasons why humanity experiences the dark "season of winter" referred to by the Enlightened Masters as the “Kali Yuga.” Who are the characters driven by this force? What is their goal? By connecting the dots of our history with science, banking, media, weather manipulation, food modification (GMO), and hidden technology, we see how this collective force strives for world control. But will they succeed?

    NO! LIGHTEN UP, as we enter the spring time and light returns.
    Learn what the Enlightened Masters say about our liberation from darkness in 2012, and the dawning of a New Age! As mankind enters the "Spring Season" we are now due for an evolutionary upgrade from our galactic center (Cosmic Mother.) According to the ancient holy book of Hinduism called “The “Vedas,” it is time to revive the knowledge of alchemy, the science of unity, and the Law of One. Learn what was forgotten and stolen from us, and you too will be filled with hope for mankind.

    This is awesome! Stepping out to see the BIGGER PICTURE of this halo-graphic matrix brought me such joy, EVEN IF THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK! We car coming out of the DARK Winter of the sun which is a circle of time from Winter to Summer or Day to Night
