ONONDAGA COUNTY, N.Y. -- Twenty people were arrested following a drone protest at Hancock Airfield in Syracuse. This is the fourth time members of the Upstate Coalition to Ground the Drones and Stop the Wars group have been arrested for protesting at the same location.
Thursday, they blocked all three gates to Hancock at once.
The Coalition says they're working to call attention to war crimes by the U.S. and Syracuse military airbases. They say innocent people are being killed in drone strikes by the U.S. military.
Police say those who refused to leave airfield property were arrested. All twenty are being charged with disorderly conduct.
