Anti-Drone Actions in the Hudson Valley

Cross-posted from No Drones New York State:

Drone-Alert Hudson Valley is hosting a series of what promise to be powerful opportunities to educate the public more about drone killing and surveillance this month.
A rally and sidewalk march will be held on Saturday, March 22 at 3 pm in Peace Park (behind Village Hall) in New Paltz. Bring signs, kites, balloons, drums, and any other means to get attention and educate passersby about drone injustice and atrocities.

The flagpole in the middle of the walkway will
remind us to speak out forcefully against the perversion
of American ideals that is drone killing.
