VFP Members Arrested While Protesting Drones In Two Actions

During the month of April Veterans For Peace and our affiliated groups brought national exposure to the realities of drone warfare. In great numbers, we rallied, marched, and spoke out against these killing machines.

Nine VFP members were arrested last Sunday @ Hancock Air Force Base in Syracuse NY protesting the illegal use of drones in Afghanistan, Pakistan and other countries.  VFP members arrested included:  John Amidon(V), Ellen Barfield(V), Russell Brown (V), Bruce Gagnon(V), Jack Gilroy(V), Charlie Heyn(V), Jules Orkin(V), Beverly Rice(A) and Andrew Schoerke(V). <More>

Barry Binks(V), was one of five people arrested @ Beale Air Base in California after dozens of anti-drone demonstrators blocked the entrance to the base for two hours,resulting in hundreds of military personnel from entering.
