Join Drone Alert Hudson Valley and Hudson River Playback Theatre at the African Roots Library in Poughkeepsie for a night of theater to dramatize the stories of activists facing prison time for peacefully protesting US drone killings.
Some activists from Upstate Drone Action have already been sentenced to prison and handed heavy fines for the “crime” of engaging in peaceful demonstrations and civil disobedience outside of Hancock Airbase in Syracuse, NY. Others have yet to go on trial. The airbase is used to pilot drones that have killed thousands of civilians in the Middle East. Several activists from Syracuse will be joining us for this special event to see their stories acted out.
The event will take place on Friday, March 6 @6:00 PM at the African Roots Library in the Family Partnership Center, 29 N Hamilton Street, Poughkeepsie, NY 12601. For more information, call Andrew at 845 699 3051 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
