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.

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!
