#NoDrones Protest at Creech Air Force Base


#NoDrones Protest at Creech Air Force Base 


January 17, 2014

Dear Activist,

Join CODEPINK from February 28th - March 8th to protest drone warfare at Creech Air Force Base during the Creech Convergence for Peace. This convergence, organized by CODEPINK, Nevada Desert Experience, Veterans for Peace, Voices for Creative Non-Violence, and Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, is a mass mobilization to stop drone wars and directly confront US militarism.

Since 2005, drone operators at Creech Air Force Base in Nevada have completed thousands of assassinations abroad of “suspected terrorists.” Despite this claim, they have in fact killed thousands of civilians–– including over 200 children in Pakistan alone and are terrorizing communities in several countries.This is hurting the United States' standing in the international community –– take it from CODEPINK's Ret. Colonel Ann Wright! 

“As a former US diplomat, I am very sensitive to the perceptions of the international community toward US foreign policies. The U.S. assassin drone campaign is a source of great anti-American sentiment around the world, not just in the Middle East. The moral and ethical aspects of illegal extrajudicial executions should be weighing heavily on those men and women in our government who make the decisions to kill and those who implement those decisions.” -Colonel Ann Wright 

This ends in 2015. Save the date to shut down killer drone operations and demand an end to Obama’s covert wars around the world. Get inspired by photos and a video of previous Creech protests! To get involved, RSVP (then share with your friends!) and invite your organization tosponsor the #ShutDownCreech action!

In Solidarity and with Hope for Peace in 2015,
Toby, Martha and the CODEPINK National Team
