Since the drone attacks began in Pakistan in 2004, much of the focus has been on the technology. And, although the borderlands between Pakistan and Afghanistan are endlessly debated and declared upon by journalists and pundits, the ordinary people who actually live there are rarely heard from. WOUNDS records the voices of those who have been either labeled “militants,” or summarily dismissed as “collateral damage.”

Saadia Toor is a long time anti-war feminist activist and educator at the College of Staten Island. Her book State of Islam: Culture & Cold War Politics in Pakistan was published in 2011 by Pluto Press and chronicles the role played by the US in marginalizing the Left and strengthening the various forces of the Right in Pakistan from the early 1950s onwards.

Please join us for this important discussion on US drone wars and the history of intervention in Pakistan.
