Italians Broke Into Hated U.S. Army Base and Planted Pot Seeds Everywhere

Wearing the "V for Vendetta"-inspired Guy Fawkes masks of the Occupy movement, a group of 50 activists in Italy cut through barbed wire to enter the Fontega US army base on May 1. They filmed themselves scattering marijuana seeds (as well as a few corn and tomato seeds) around the compound.


According to a press release, the rogue gardeners were part of Italy's No Dal Molin movement and their actions were in protest of violent U.S. policies. They planted 200,000 seeds in all, “to liberate our land from the foundations of war.”  The statement speaks up against the failed U.S. war on drugs and corrupt U.S. policies at large.
