Democracy Now: 17 Arrested in Anti-drone Protest at Hancock Air Base

Seventeen people were arrested on Thursday protesting U.S. drone warfare at the Hancock Field Air National Guard Base near Syracuse, New York. Members of the Upstate Coalition to Ground the Drones and End the Wars were detained after creating a blockade outside three of the base’s gates, holding signs and pictures of children killed by U.S. drone attacks overseas. It was the latest in a series of protests outside the base, where the drones are operated remotely.
