Background:
Beale Air Force Base is the nearest drone military base to the SF Bay Area, near Marysville, CA.  The Global Hawk surveillance drone controlled from Beale AFB is intimately involved in the drone assassination program.  Two of the drone whistleblowers in the documentary, National Bird, were stationed at Beale.  A military spokesperson recently revealed that 80% of U.S. Air Strikes involve U.S. drones in some way and that in 2016 alone: 61,700 +  U.S. bombs/missiles hit global targets and communities around the world.  WE MUST NOT BE SILENT.  END MILITARISM AT HOME & ABROAD, STOP THE BARBARISM OF DRONE KILLING, FEED THE HUNGRY AND END RACISM.  MONEY FOR HUMAN NEEDS NOT WAR & GREED.  “Occupy Beale Air Force Base” is a coalition of Northern California activists who participate in a monthly 2-day anti-drone, anti-militarism protest at Beale. Please join us whenever you can.

Divest from Lockheed Martin
Jul 27 @ 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM

Join CodePink  and Pacific Life at it’s weekly Divest from the War Machine Campaign against Lockheed Martin.  Lockheed is the largest weapons manufacturer in the US, responsible for missiles that carry nuclear warheads, and Hellfire missiles which are shot from drones. We need a transformation of American priorities by divesting from hyper-militarism that is not making us safer, putting us deeper in  debt and invest in the America people and spread peace and justice in the world.

We gather at the corner of Mathilda Avenue and Java in front of the Lockheed Martin main gate with banners, song, prayer and nonviolent action. This a monthly vigil against nuclear weapons.  Every 4th Friday and every Friday during Advent and Lent

Take Hwy 101 to Mathilda in Sunnyvale and turn right on Java to park on one of the side streets.  Meet at the Lockheed Martin gates on the corner  with banners, song, prayer and nonviolent action. Invite a friend or bring a family member to protest the military-industrial complex, which Lockheed Martin leads the way as the largest producer of nuclear weapons in the world.
 If you have any questions contact:
Peggy – 408-221-3424 or
Fumi – 408-297-8330

From our National Site

The national CodePink organization organizes for justice for Iraqis and to hold war criminals accountable. CodePink actively opposes the U.S. war in Afghanistan, torture, the detention center at Guantanamo, weaponized and spy drones, the prosecution of whistleblowers, U.S. support for the Israeli occupation of Palestine and repressive regimes.

Rooted in a network of local organizers, CodePink's tactics include satire, street theatre, creative visuals, civil resistance, and directly challenging powerful decision-makers in government and corporations. And, of course, wearing pink!
