DroneYou are invited to meet the American anti-drones protestor Brian Terrell in the Queen’s Foundation for Ecumenical Theological Education on Monday 7th October at 7.30pm.

Brian Terrell is a co-coordinator of Voices for Creative Nonviolence and lives and works at Strangers and Guests Catholic Worker Farm in Maloy, Iowa, where with his partner, Betsy Keenan and others, he tends a large garden and small herd of goats and chickens. From this little farm, Brian travels around Iowa and beyond, speaking and acting with communities that are working for justice and peace. His travels include Iraq and Afghanistan and he was deported from Bahrain in 2012 after witnessing the violent repression of human rights activists there. In recent years, he has been active in resistance to remote controlled murders by drones with friends in Nevada, New York and Missouri and on May 24 of this year he was released from a six month federal prison sentence for participating in a peaceable assembly in protest of drones at Whiteman Air Force Base in Missouri.
