Three arrested delivering 'citizens' Order of Protection' to New York drone base

 | 

Two Yale divinity students and a Catholic Worker were arrested at Hancock Field Air Base in Syracuse, N.Y., on Monday while attempting to deliver what they described as a "citizens' Order of Protection."

The three activists said they were issuing the order, typically used in circumstances of domestic abuse, on behalf of Afghan civilians terrorized by drones remotely launched from the military air base.
