Why We Go to Creech to STOP THE TERROR of the U.S. Drone Killing Machine!

Did you hear about the 3 Afghan toddler girls whose flesh was ripped to pieces by a U.S. Drone Strike last Sunday?  Striking in a Kabul NEIGHBORHOOD, the attack also killed 4 other children, including 2 more under 6 years old!  The grief on Amal Ahmadi’s face tells it all!  10 civilian family members dead, 7 of them children, body parts everywhere, and bodies unrecognizable.  It was a horrific and tragic scene. And then there was last Friday’s U.S. drone strike in Nangarhar Province that U.S. officials claimed killed two “high profile” ISIS-K targets.”  A witness reported, “…rickshaws were burning.  Children and women were wounded and one man, one boy and one woman had been killed on the spot.”
OFFICIALS LIE…CHILDREN, WOMEN AND MEN DIE!
WE MUST UNITE TO STOP THIS RACIST U.S. DRONE TERROR IN THE SKY.

SHUT DOWN CREECH, Spring Action, April 4-10

“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.  We honored the courage of drone whistleblower, Daniel Hale, throughout the week.  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.
