Bethlehem resident Joseph Lombardo went with an anti-war delegation to Pakistan to demonstrate against the use of drones within the United States military. He will be speaking about his experiences at an event at the Bethlehem Public Library.
continued Lombardo’s speech will include stories about the people he met and the devastating circumstances Pakistanis face in their daily lives. He will also share photos and the group’s plans for the future.
“The Pakistani people know not all Americans are what our government is, but what they don’t know is many Americans don’t support these wars. It raises the question of what is war and why do we need it? We’re trying to raise awareness of their plight,” Lombardo said.
The discussion will be held at Bethlehem Public Library on Sunday, Oct. 28 from 3 to 5 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
