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.

UC Regents Divest!
Jul 18 @ 8:00 AM – 11:00 AM

UC Regents: Divest from war and child detention!

The investment firm BlackRock has an all-access pass to influence billions of UC funds. BlackRock is the top investor in gun and weapon manufacturers. BlackRock invests in the defense contractor, General Dynamics, which profits from child detention.

BlackRock CEO and UCLA alum, Larry Fink, made a statement that BlackRock will hold companies accountable to be good global citizens. Obviously, a statement is not enough, when BlackRock continues to invest in companies engaging in war and conflict. There should be no profit from war. There should be no profit from child detention. We call on the UC Regents to end BlackRock’s access to billions of UC funds!

Join us for public comment at the upcoming UC Regents meeting at UCSF Mission Bay, July 18-19. Let’s get war, greed, and violence out of our universities. More details to come.

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:

4th Annual Shut Down Creech 2018:  Big Changes for our Drone Resistance week.
Sep 30 @ 8:00 AM – Oct 6 @ 9:00 AM
Hi Peacemakers and Drone Resisters!
April 1 – April 7:  Codepink Drone Resistance Week at Creech   
(Please note: this is a week earlier than previously advertised….details below).
 
Sept. 30 – October 6:  4th Annual Shut Down Creech
( Note the 2 weeks are switched!) (Both weeks are committed to using peaceful nonviolent resistance to put an end to drone killing and global warfare!  Come for all or part of each week.)
BIG CHANGES:
1. We’re “flip flopping”!  Shut Down Creech, (SDC), the “mass mobilization drone resistance” week is moving to the the autumn.  Weather is milder, less wind.  The “smaller” CODEPINK organized week is moving to the spring:  April 1- April 7. (All welcome).  If you are planning to come in the spring, consider joining NDE’s amazing Sacred Peace Walk  as well, which will be the week just before. You can join all or part of both weeks.
2. Camp Justice at Shut Down Creech is moving to Goddess Temple Grounds, and will no longer be set up across from the base.  This will make camping and peacemaking much friendlier:  running water, showers, Peace Pavilion meeting area and lots of shade all at our fingertips!  This makes for happier campers, and better energy for peaceful resistance!
3.  Sponsorship for 4th Annual Shut Down Creech:  We are inviting every peace & justice organization and chapters across the country to send at least one representative to SHUT DOWN CREECH.  Let’s make 2018 Shut Down Creech larger than ever.  Dear Veterans for Peace chapters and other peace organizations:  Won’t you please consider sponsoring one member this year to participate in 4th Annual SHUT DOWN CREECH, Sept. 30-October 6?

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!
