I'd love to leave links in my tracks through the woods

Thirty people were  arrested protesting against unmanned aerial drones outside Hancock Field Air Force National Guard Base. 

Syracuse, New York, y’know…

After a series of sleepless rallies and workshops held in Syracuse over the weekend by the Upstate Coalition to Ground the Drones and End the Wars.The Post-Standard reports that the arrests Sunday came

A group of people lying on the base's driveway were arrested. Charges include disorderly conduct, obstructing governmental administration and loitering. About 250 people had marched to the gates,

“ some pounding drums and chanting.” Yes, but what color were their knickers? That’s for you ladies.  Boys; are you athletic supporters? Of course you are.

But, getting arrested. Over. And. Over. And Over. Again. While the rest of the country’s got its head in a bag of Doritos and its arse translated into ones and zeros that spark and flash across the sky over Wall Street, The City, Hong Kong, Singapore.

Look! Up in the sky! It’s your arse making money for Rupert Murdoch.

They go to jail – and in some cases prison – for their beliefs, on your behalf, in the name of some semblance of a future…

And all the other arses should go jail.  For being addicted that rots body and soul faster than heroin ever did.

And I should know…

The base is home to the 174th Attack Wing of the New York Air National Guard, which operates unmanned, armed drones. They are used for intelligence gathering and bombing ground targets.
