Anti-Drone Activists Preemptively Arrested in New York State on Sunday


From Judy Bellows

More on the preemptive arrests:

Ann Tiffany was arrested after she exited her car and crossed the street a block before the beginning of the fence that surrounds the base. 

Those arrested in the street several blocks from the base have been put on a bus for processing.   Those on the bus were giving the option to waive their arrest and leave, but only 1 person did so.   Shortly thereafter, a plainclothes policeman with a Sheriff Dept Jacket drove up and spoke to them.  They then took the rest of those arrested to the courthouse for arraignment.

Arrests at the front gate of Hancock AFB:

Six people did reach the gate of the base, where they were arrested attempting to deliver an indictment.   Those people included Elliott Adams of Veterans for Peace and Ed Kinane and Rae Kramer of Syracuse.  Debra Sweet of World Can't Wait was by the gate talking to the press. who seemed visibly shaken by the overwhelming response of the police to a peaceful walk down the street and efforts to deliver a letter to the gate. 

Sandy called again to say that the police are everywhere, and that if you slow down as you drive along, they come up behind you and shriek their siren and flash their lights to encourage you to speed up and get out of there.  She drove by the gate of Hancock AFB on her way out of the area, but all of the people were gone.  A couple of young soldiers and some police were standing around giving one another high fives.

From Debra Sweet:
 
34 arrested. A few of those @ gate. Most arrested when the whole group was at end of 2 mile march, preemptively stopped from getting to the base by sheriffs who grabbed the front of the march. All but 1 released. Press release soon.
