Everyone is invited to join CODEPINK in it’s campaign of Non-violent Actions to Ground Killer Drones, End US Militarism and Endless War. Although illegal U.S. drone strikes are mostly absent from mainstream news reporting, they continue to terrorize communities around the globe. Indeed, they are a critical tool for U.S. global domination, both for global surveillance and targeted assassination. Under the Trump administration U.S air strikes have drastically expanded in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Somalia and elsewhere, causing untold civilian suffering and death. Many or possibly most of these air strikes are likely remotely controlled missile strikes from U.S. drones. Join us in breaking the silence, and be a strong voice of resistance!
CODEPINK demonstrates at Creech AFB because we want our government to stop the killing and start the rebuilding of hospitals. schools, towns and people’s lives. We hope you can join us and help spread the word that drones strikes brings endless war, it does not make us safer nor will it bring peace!
Stay at the beautiful Goddess Temple guest house (3 miles from the drone base), work with like-minded activists standing up against US militarism, and share special excursions in the beautiful Nevada desert with others, as we rejuvenate with nature between daily am and pm vigils and actions at Creech.

CODEPINK will join the School of Americas Watch Border Convergence in Nogales for their second bi-national convergence at the militarized U.S./Mexico border, to build the grassroots power necessary to challenge the racist status quo and push back against U.S. intervention in Latin America.
SOA Watch is an independent organization that seeks to close the US Army School of the Americas, under whatever name it is called, through vigils and fasts, demonstrations and nonviolent protest, as well as media and legislative work.
The School of the Americas (SOA) is a combat training school for Latin American soldiers, located at Fort Benning, Georgia. In 2001 renamed the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation (WHINSEC). Since 1946, the SOA has trained over 64,000 Latin American soldiers in counterinsurgency techniques, sniper training, commando and psychological warfare, military intelligence and interrogation tactics. These graduates have consistently used their skills to wage a war against their own people. Among those targeted by SOA graduates are educators, union organizers, religious workers, student leaders, and others who work for the rights of the poor. Hundreds of thousands of Latin Americans have been tortured, raped, assassinated, “disappeared,” massacred, and forced into refugee by those trained at the School of Assassins.
