Noon Edition

Activist and Author Medea Benjamin

It sounds so negative-the protest, against drones, against this, against war. In reality, it's all about the positive.

Medea Benjamin is a former economist and nutritionist with the United Nations. She is the editor or author of eight books, her latest being Drone Warfare: Killing by Remote Control.

Her articles appear regularly in outlets such as The Huffington Post, CommonDreams, and Alternet.

She was a key player in the campaign that won a $20 million settlement from American clothing retailers for the use of sweatshop labor in Saipan, and influenced Starbucks and other companies to carry fair trade coffee.
