Around 1,500 people staged a rally outside the U.S military's Ramstein base on Saturday, to protest against the base's role in U.S drone operations.

Protesters formed a human chain stretching around the village, while holding banners denouncing the US military facility and NATO. Others waved signs of support to whistleblowers like Chelsea Manning and Edward Snowden. Some protesters also demanded the end of EU's sanctions on Russia.

Ramstein Air Base is a United States Air Force base serving as headquarters for the United States Air Forces in Europe, and is also a North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) installation. The base is used to coordinate and execute most of the United States global Drone program.
