4th Annual SHUT DOWN CREECH:
“STOP the Murder, STOP the War Crimes”
7 protesters arrested while blockading Creech Assassin Drone Base…Just a week later over75 Somali militants were killed in a single U.S. drone attack!
On Thursday, October 4th, as part of this fall’s CODEPINK weeklong anti-drone protest at Creech Assassin Drone Base, 7 protesters and a couple of supporters bravely stepped across the base entrance road to temporarily “halt” the cruel and illegal U.S. Air Force’s “remote killing machine” located in the beautiful Nevada desert. While holding large banners across the roadway, our voices repeatedly called out as loudly as we could muster: “STOP the murder, STOP the War Crimes……The People Demand Peace!

 Everyone is invited to join CODEPINK in it’s Campaign of Non-violent Actions to Ground Killer Drones, End US Militarism and Endless War. The drone era of endless war began in  2001 with the US invasion of Afghanistan.  In 2003 the US invaded Iraq for a second time causing millions of causalities, civil war and creating millions of refugees. These wars had a domino affect on five other countries spreading death and destruction on a continental scale. Since 2009 CodePink along with dozens of protesters/activists have been arrested at drones bases worldwide: at  Creech Air Force Base, because it is the brain of the US’s worldwide killer drone network, at Ramstein AFB, the heart of the killer drone network, at Beale and other drone bases that extend the killer drone network worldwide. We demand that the US  government stop the indiscriminate killing, injury, and trauma to civilians in Pakistan,  Afghanistan, Somalia, Iraq, Yemen, Syria, and Libya caused by drones and endless wars.

CreechAction1

As the sun rose over the mountains activists  from over 20 states participated with CODEPINK in a Mass Mobilization in the desert outside Las Vegas to shut down the gates to Creech Air Force Base, home of the Reaper and Predator drones program. For over an hour on both Thursday, March 31 and Friday, April 1, activists protested, performed and called for peace. This was no April Fools’ joke but a serious mobilization of people who stepped over the line to confront the airmen who control killer drones. The two days of actions were part of a week-long protest at the base, March 27 – April 1st, culminating in a total of 25 arrests during the 2nd Annual National Mass Mobilization against Drone Warfare known as SHUT DOWN CREECH!
