Whistleblowers, Journalists and Lawyers

presentation

11.05.2017, 00:00 Uhr

Building on an October 2016 conference ECCHR will launch its new publication “Litigating Drone Strikes: Challenging the Global Network of Remote Killing” featuring contributions from international policy and legal experts.
 
Following the launch and introduced by Expose Facts` lawyer Kathleen McClellan, Pratap Chatterjee, executive director of CorpWatch and award winning investigative journalist, will present his new report “DRONE, Inc. Marketing the Illusion of Precision Warfare” exposing the contractors, technology and failings behind the US drone war. New documents (obtained under the Freedom of Information Act) as well as numerous military engineering studies show the deep structural problems in the targeted killing program as an integral part of a broader system of mass surveillance.
 
Chatterjee will also present a short video animation of the drone war illustrating how enlisted military personnel are trapped in a military-industrial system that routinely violates basic human rights, followed by US whistleblowers` comments.
