Ground All Drones is a committee of Women Against Military Madness (WAMM) created to address the use of drones, particularly armed drones. Drones are developed worldwide, not only by the U.S. but by other nations as well. In the U.S.unarmed surveillance drones could be used to spy on citizens, a clear violation of our Fourth Amendment Rights. The current focus of this committee is on the use of weaponized drones.

"Drone Warfare and the Cyborg Soldier: Margins of Masculinity"

"Drone Warfare and the Cyborg Soldier: Margins of Masculinity"
Tuesday, June 13, 2017, at 7:00 pm
East Side Freedom Library, 1105 Greenbrier Street, St. Paul, MN
Presentation by Suzanne Al-Kayali

Modern military power has ignited real and virtual changes as nations make war
and soldiers perceive themselves as warriors. The role of the soldier has
changed with the evolution of technologies, such as drones. Is the hyper-
masculine "be-all-you-can-be" soldier being replaced? Suzanne will discuss the
role of "masculinity" in contemporary warfare and the development of the new
"cyborg" soldier.
Suzanne Al-Kayali is the current director of WAMM. She earned her Master's
degree in Sociology with an emphasis in Women and Gender Studies from
Roosevelt University in Chicago.
