They could. Could you?

On 19 March, giant books shut the main gate of the Hancock drone base in New York state, USA.

Seven members of the Upstate Coalition to Ground the Drones and End the Wars put up eight-foot-high copies of the UN Charter, Dirty Wars by Jeremy Scahill, Living Under Drones, and You Never Die Twice, the Reprieve report on drone warfare.

The seven were arrested and charged with trespass, disorderly conduct and obstructing governmental administration.
