Reflections from Brian Terrell

Evening event: 7 p.m.
Room 113 Arts and Sciences Bldg.

On Nov. 30, Brian Terrell will begin a six-month federal prison sentence for nonviolently protesting drones as weapons of war. He was arrested in April at Whiteman Air Force Base in western Missouri for trespassing, trying to deliver an indictment condemning drone flights—controlled from there and several other U.S.-operated bases globally. The weapons, used more than ever under the Obama administration, have killed thousands of people (hundreds of them innocent non-combatants) in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen and elsewhere.

Terrell lives on a Catholic Worker farm near Maloy, Iowa, traveled to Central Asia last year and is co-coordinator of Voices for Creative Nonviolence. Learn more about these weapons and why he was willing to risk imprisonment to protest their use.

Sponsored by the William Woods Dept. of Legal Studies, MU Peace Studies Program, Mid-Missouri Fellowship of Reconciliation (FOR) and the St. Francis Catholic Worker Community. For info, call Jeff at 573-449-4585 or Cynthia at 573-592-4293 or see
