Anti-drone activists are finding themselves in courts across the US, for protesting against the use of the deadly unmanned aircraft. Several groups are on trial separately, with one being prosecuted for blockading a drone air base. Yet there’s still relative media silence about what the drones do to civilian populations, leaving the public in the dark. That’s what anti-war activist David Swanson has told RT.
