“Stopping Business as Usual at Creech Killer Drone Base”
MINI-REPORT: (Longer report to come soon).
Fantastic week of drone resistance at SHUT DOWN CREECH!
Incredible and committed peace activists from coast to coast contributed in amazing ways.
3 out of 5 mornings included “soft blockades” that impeded commuter traffic into Creech killer drone base, communicating to the military that the drone crimes being committed daily at Creech in the Nevada desert are intolerable, illegal and must be stopped.

Daniel faces up to 10 years imprisonment for leaking classified military documents that exposed war crimes of the secret U.S. drone program. His sentencing trial is in July.
