Host Stephanie Potter speaks with Peter Lumsdaine who will be speaking in Portland tonight, Monday, April 19. Veterans for Peace Chapter 72 is bringing in Peter to the Friends Meeting House at 43rd and SE Stark, 7-9PM. $5-10 donation. No one turned away for lack of funds. Peter has worked for over 20 years with nonprofit programs addressing peace and international security, as well as global economic, ecological and cultural issues.  After serving as interim co-pastor at Boise's Hyde Park Mennonite Fellowship and conducting meetings at the 2009 Mennonite national convention, Lumsdaine organized the inter/national Alliance to Resist Robotic Warfare & Society (ARROWS), the first organization of its kind, and initiated planning for the first civil society conference ever held on challenging robotic warfare and social control. The conference was held in Hood River, and included a nonviolent action outside of  the Boeing Insitu factory in Bingen, Washington. Boeing Insitu now employs over 700 people at sites up and down the Gorge to manufacuture surveillance drones that are used in weapon systems in targeted attacks in the Afghan-Pakastani frontier region.  For more info visit Columbia River Fellowship for Peace.  Also Peter suggests contacting or calling 509-447-4250.  For more information on Peter's talk tonight, contact Jenika, Vice President of Veterans for Peace, Chapter 72 -503-232-1322.
