Drone Free Horsham Protest

With the announcement that a Remotely Piloted Aircraft (drone) command center will open at the Horsham Air Guard Base (located in Montgomery county, Pennsylvania) in October local activists from all parts of the political spectrum came together and swung into action. On April 27, 2013 about one hundred protesters marched to the base's main gate and held a rally they called Drone Free Horsham. See video below:

Online press coverage and pictures can be seen at, "Protesters say no to drones in Horsham". More pictures can be seen on Facebook.

One of the nicest things about the protest was how people put aside their differences to stand together against drones. It was refreshing to see a protester wearing a National Rifle Association T-shirt standing next to a protester wearing a Green Party T-shirt. While not directly involved, this was very much in the spirit of Come Home America, a politically neutral peace movement.
