Watch the Pirate Party fly a drone in front of Germany’s chancellor

Activists from Germany's Pirate Party found a creative way to protest the surveillance policies of their nation's leader, Chancellor Angela Merkel. At a campaign rally, they flew a small Parrot quadcopter drone up to the stage, where it hovered above Merkel's head. They later claimed responsibility, according to TorrentFreak, stating that the stunt was "a protest against the EU’s use of surveillance drones."
