Luminous Intervention at General Stanley McChrystal Foreign Affairs Symposium

4 Mar

Check out this video of our Luminous Intervention at General Stanley McChrystal’s talk at Johns Hopkins!

On Wednesday, Feburary 27th, we projected words and images onto Shriver Hall to bring attention to drone warfare and JHU’s involvement in drone weapons research and development. Our projection coincided with General Stanley McChrystal’s speech at the Foreign Affairs Symposium. We also presented this informational flyer.

Luminous Intervention is a group of artists and activists in Baltimore. They design, produce, and project “large-scale outdoor projections highlighting social and economic issues relevant to our city and its people.”

HRWG hosts panel on JHU drone research 

The debate over the U.S. military’s use of drones has been heating up in the media and on campus for some time now. In a recent panel held in Mergenthaler Hall, experts discussed the hot-button topic and specifically Hopkins’ involvement in classified drone research.

The event, hosted by the Hopkins Human Rights Working Group (HRWG), was co-sponsored by Amnesty International, the Graduate Representative Organization, the Departments of Anthropology and Political Science, the Arab Students’ Organization and Students for Environmental Action.

The two guest experts on the panel were James Cavallaro, the director of the International Human Rights and Conflict Resolution Clinic at Stanford Law School, and Omar Shakir, also of Stanford Law School. Both were co-authors of the recent Stanford and New York University (NYU) study titled “Living Under Drones.” Results of the study drew from interviews of about 130 Pakistanis directly and indirectly involved in drone attacks.
