After nearly a three-week break, the trial for 16 protesters of drone warfare resumed Thursday at DeWitt town court.  The defendants, known initially as the Hancock 17, were arrested in October of 2012 after they blocked three gates at Hancock Air National Guard Base.  

Two peace advocates who’ve made several trips to Afghanistan are in Syracuse to share their observations…and join protests against the use of military drones.  Kathy Kelly traveled with the group “Voices of Creative Nonviolence" and saw people struggling economically after four decades of war.
