VIDEO SHINES LIGHT ON DRONE ATTACKS
With your help, War Costs released its first video on the important subject of drone strikes in Pakistan. It has been a huge success! The video accompanied a report by human rights law experts at Stanford and New York University law schools. The report, entitled “Living Under Drones,” presents chilling first-hand testimony from Pakistani civilians on the humanitarian and security costs of escalating drone attacks by the United States.
Our staff used the video and report to create a conversation around America's drone policy in Pakistan. The echo chamber was activated and dozens of major outlets across the the U.S., and beyond, including Huffington Post's front page and the New York Times, picked it up. (See a full list on our Press page.)
This was no small feat given the relatively minor amount of attention the subject yields in the U.S., in part because of the extreme secrecy that obscures an honest look at the program. But we are going to change that.
Please share this video; to help us build the momentum. We will be making a big announcement next week, so please look for an email from us which will detail our plans on this life-and-death issue. With your help, we can make a difference.
