The 37 Protestors who were arrested at Hancock Field April 22, 2011 protesting the Reaper Drones

In addition to the hundreds of protestors at Hancock Air Field in Syracuse, NY on April 22nd, the following 37 individuals raised the level of protest at the air field by participating in non-violent direct action and were arrested. They ranged in age from 17 to 91.

One of the speakers, Brian Terrell, asked the question that would guide him to cross the line and risk arrest:

You come upon a house and it is on fire, there's a 'no trespassing' sign on the door, there's a child in the window screaming.
"Is it a crime to break down that door, ignore the 'no trespassing' sign and go to the child?"
