  • Friday, April 28, "Creating A PEACE Community"

Full day of formal and informal activities to help energize and build a growing anti-drone, anti-militarism global effort: connecting, debriefing, brainstorming, strategizing & nurturing.  We will end with a "Celebratory Feast" and some after dinner surprises.

Now more than ever, the times demand that we resist US drone assassinations and perpetual wars! WE MUST RISE, LOVE, RESIST!

Join CODEPINK, Veterans For Peace, Nevada Desert Experience, and Voices for Creative Nonviolence for this crucial protest at Creech Air Force Base.  In each of the last two years, nearly 150 activists, including over 50 veterans, joined us from 20 different states across the country.  In a series of imaginative nonviolent direct actions, involving the arrest of dozens of activists, we were able to disrupt business as usual. We would not have been so successful without the many ways everyone contributed.  At this crucial point in history, please help make SHUT DOWN CREECH 2017 an even more powerful stance against drone killing and global militarism. Encourage your friends and relatives to come and "stand with" our Muslim sisters & brothers in the circle of life!

Please Contact Us and let us know how we can make Shut Down Creech even better in 2017!
