Please Note: Sessions 7 & 8 were not filmed.

What should we do instead? What alternatives do we point to that help end or limit the use of drones?

What are some of the alternative practices to the use of lethal drones in stopping violence by non-state and state actors, with attention to prevention, defusing violence, and healing?
