Ithaca, N.Y. — A national publication has produced an approximately 6-minute documentary revolving around Ithaca grandmother Mary Anne Grady Flores, who in July was sentenced to a year in jail for her role in an anti-drones demonstration.

The video, created by Mashable, captures an exchange between Grady Flores and an officer at the military base.

Officer: “Go change your god damn government.”

Grady Flores: “We’re not here to protest you personally.”

Officer: “You are protesting me personally. Go change your government.”

Grady Flores has been released on bail pending her appeal. Mashable interviewed her for the story.

“They want to scare people; they want to quell dissent,” Grady Flores said.

“But the opposite effect has happened as a result of the judge sentencing me to one year in jail.”
