45 people, Reaper Drone, attend film screening in Bloomington

The Bloomington Peace Action Coalition held a screening of Robert Greenwald's Unmanned: America's Drone Wars last Thursday, 3/20 (the 11th anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Iraq) at the Monroe County Public library. At least 45 attended the screening, and many stayed afterward for discussion, which included a presentation and comment on the proposed national Drone Control Act as well as a local resolution to ban drone use in the City of Bloomington, similar to resolutions passed in Charlottesville, VA and other U.S. cities. The screening also provided an opportunity to announce the arrival in Bloomington of the Drone Quilt Project six weeks from now.

A Reaper Drone replica sat outside of the library underneath the

 while attracting viewers to the screening. Pictured
