Officials at Beale Air Force Base confirm that five anti-drone protesters with the group Veterans for Peace were arrested today for trespassing.  

The five were part of an Ash Wednesday service at the gates of the base east of Yuba City, site of the surveillance drone Global Hawk.  

The Global Hawk typically performs reconnaissance missions ahead of U.S. Predator Drones, which Veterans for Peace say are responsible for killing innocent civilians overseas.
