Catholic Worker Activists Acquitted of Protest at Drone Base

New York, October 26 (RHC)-- Five Catholic Worker activists have been acquitted for blocking the gate of a New York base where U.S. drones are operated remotely earlier this year.

The protesters held signs condemning the killings of children and other civilians as they stood in front of the entrance to Hancock Field Air National Guard Base near Syracuse, New York. Calling the drone strikes illegal, the activists had argued in court their intent was to uphold the law, not break it.
