|Cornel West melted into the crowd, joining the People|
in speaking out against the drone atrocities being
perpetrated at Hancock and elsewhere.
The theme of the protest was the delivery of a "People's Order of Protection" against all those complicit in U.S. drone terror. After West drew connections between racism, poverty, and drone killing, the Peoples' Order of Protection allowed those taking part in the protest to ally themselves with the victims of drone killing as part of a global 99%, standing up against murder and surveillance by the wealthy and powerful. It also made a mockery of the recent ludicrous abuse by Dewitt town judge Gideon of the Order of Protection against those engaging in peaceful protest at Hancock.
|Demonstrators stood in vigil to remember|
those killed by U.S. drone strikes.
Major sponsors of the event were the Syracuse Peace Council and the Upstate Coalition to Ground the Drones and End the Wars.
