Drones & militarization: What’s the real story?

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED TO MID-APRIL. Keep up to date with the Facebook page of Critical Collective for more information.

The number of US drone strikes is on the rise and Europe has announced to follow suit; military bases are mushrooming across the globe; the largest ever arms deals are being struck and the US recently designated nuclear weapons as part of ‘conventional warfare’. To experts, these are some indications of the unprecedented level of global militarization. The human toll of war is set to reach unseen heights.
