San Diego Libertarian Party Supper Club

San Diego Libertarians! The Libertarian Supper Club has the pleasure to present our special guest for the month of February 2013 - Mr. Dave Patterson 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.

Liberty lovers.

The Libertarian Supper Club is a monthly dinner meeting each month, except in November and December. Each month we discuss a different topic, listen to a speaker, and/or watch a video. You are welcome to join us for the presentation or simply for conversation with other local libertarians. It is free to attend, and checks for dinner and drinks are separate. You order and pay at the counter, and then proceed back to the meeting room. Some months we have a drawing for a coin or other gift. We are open to suggestions for future topics. Send a message to Mike Benoit if you'd like to make a suggestion.
