USAF Croughton & Networked Warfare – The Joint Intelligence Analysis Complex:
It rained!, at times torrentially; but that didn't dampen people's spirit to highlight the role of USAF Croughton in controlling drones, co-ordinating the USA's mass surveillance operations, and the prosecution of unlawful wars in support of the USA's political aims.
Setting up as the rain gathers pace.
Unfortunately the rain, and carrying placards, interrupted getting some good shots of the march. After walking the mile or so along the road, with police accompanyment on the road and shadowed inside the perimeter fence by US security, we arrived at the main gate for our rally.
Everyone squeezes inside the tea tents as the speeches and the torrential rain begins.
The fence is decorated – though less photogenic than usual as the two "gate guard" fighter jets had been removed a few days before our arrival.
The sun and blue skies arrive for Lindis Percy to talk about her recent legal adventures at NSA Menwith Hill.
Then after the serious discussions, theatre and games, and then home.
...in the meantime, dark clouds gather over the US government's "kill chain" communications complex.
