MINI-REPORT: (Longer report to come soon).
These “Burma-Shave” signs were stretched along the highway during the first morning’s commute.
By Toby Bloom
In the middle of a global pandemic, and amidst growing racial and political turmoil within our country,15 activists from California, Arizona, Nevada and New Mexico converged at Creech Killer Drone Base just north of Las Vegas. Most were members of CODEPINK and Veterans for Peace, the event co-sponsors. For one week, in the beautiful Nevada high desert, we became a united peaceful resistance to the ultimate in U.S. global terror & violence: militarized drones. One of the participants, Charles Withuhn from Chico, CA, shared the Krishnamurti quote. It expressed our motivation succinctly: We refuse to become “well adjusted” to the brutality and inhumanity of killing people around the world with computers and satellites. (Click on the quote above for a discussion of Krishnamurti’s words.)

UPDATE: Our 2020 weeklong fall convergence to resist U.S. killer drones in the Nevada desert has been scheduled! We can’t wait to work together again to nonviolently oppose the barbaric and deadly drone assassination program at Creech AFB that terrorizes communities around the world.
There are a group of us who are committed to SDC Fall 2020, in spite of the pandemic. We will observe social distancing, tent camp and take other precautions to keep everyone safe. We ask that you weigh the risks carefully. The registration form articulates the measures we will follow. We ask that participants drive and not fly or use other forms of transportation to arrive to Creech. For further details please check the Housing & Transportation page on this website.
