General Atomics manufactures the Predator drones used in deadly strikes by the United States Air Force and Central Intelligence Agency.
In a tweet, Codepink representatives said that they are “On our way to home of CEO of @generalatomics, Neal Blue, to fly a #drone. Let’s see how he likes it!”
Codepink, known for their anti-war guerilla theater, held an anti-drone week in late February.

Update: In an email, Codepink’s Medea Benjamin told Fast Company that although Codepink launched the AR.Parrot, police confiscated the drone and prevented the organization from flying it over Blue’s home. The UAV was later returned.NU
