Utica, NY (04/03/2014)
- Utica College student groups Pi Sigma Alpha and The James Sherman Society welcome keynote speakers Ed Kinane and Ann Tiffany on Wednesday, April 9 for a forum titled “The Drones Are Coming: Why Central New York Should Care.”

The lecture will take place in the Willard Conference Room, DePerno Hall, at 7 p.m. It is free and open to the public.

Kinane and Tiffany are both members of the Upstate Drone Action activist organization; they will speak about domestic and international aspects of the use of drones. The forum will focus on drones across the world by the United States military, significant civilian casualties resulting from drone attacks, domestic surveillance and privacy concerns and implications for international law and human rights.

Both Kinane and Tiffany have served federal prison time for their nonviolent civil defiance against the Pentagon’s School of the Americas in Fort Benning, Ga.

Tiffany spearheaded an effort to have the City Council pass a resolution banning the use of drones without warrants in the skies of Syracuse.

The Pi Sigma Alpha “Conversation Series” allows students, faculty and the community exchange ideas about important public policy issues and promote civic engagement and discourse on public policy, politics and government.
