Ann Wright is a former U.S. Army colonel and retired official of the U.S. State Department who is known for her outspoken opposition to the Iraq War. She publicly resigned in direct protest of the March 2003 invasion of Iraq. She recently visited Pakistan to talk with citizens about the impact of drones on their lives.
Nick Mottern is an author and activist who recently embarked on a KNOW DRONES tour, the purpose of which was to inform US citizens on the unethical and illegal use of US war drones so that they will oppose the use of war drones—weaponized and spy drones—both by the United States and the global community.
