Three Buffalonians arrested in Syracuse drone protest

Three Buffalonians were among 31 arrested Sunday at Hancock Field Air National Guard Base near Syracuse protesting the use of drones in Afghanistan, Pakistan and other countries.

Ruessell Brown, Bonnie Mahoney and Valerie Niederhoffer, members of the Upstate Coalition to Ground the Drones and End the Wars, were among an estimated 275 people who took part in the protest. The group has planned another protest against drones at 1 p.m. on Mother’s Day outside Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station.
