Dear Peace Allies; This month.s Occupy Beale Mar. 27-28th: The People Say No More Wars! We will memorialize the civilians who continue to murdered by US drones and airstrikes! This montth -230 civilians killed in Mosul, Iraq by U.S. Coalition Air strikes -49 civilians killed by Reaper drone, while praying in their mosque near Aleppo Syria. Let’s stand with our Muslim sisters and brothers for their right to live without the fear of drone missiles, bombs and perpetual war threatening their daily lives. Newly “elected” President Trump has inherited drone killing and perpetual wars from President Obama….killing 10 Muslims by drones in Yemen in his first hours in office. Stop the Bloody Killing!
CODEPINK’S Campaign of Non-Violent Actions against the worldwide killer drone network and endless war is trying to change these acts of US Militarism and remote killings that has destabilized the Middle East, created millions of civilian causalities, refugees and to a feeling of heightened insecurity in the west. The world desperately needs U.S. foreign strategy to becomes one of restraint, cooperation, and mutual security. CODEPINK demonstrates because we want our government to stop the killing and start the rebuilding of hospitals. schools, towns and people’s lives. We hope you can join us and help spread the word that drones strikes brings endless war, it does not make us safer or will it bring peace!
We peace activists from Occupy Beale Air Force Base invite Indivisible activists to join us in protesting US wars, and drone warfare around the planet. This warfare is killing many innocents and contributing to the refugee crisis. (Beale AFB is the home of the Global Hawk, surveillance/reconnaissance drone).
We will be singing and dancing (join in flash mob dance if you like). Please wear red, bring instruments and dancing feet. There may be some direct action for those interested.
We want to continue to give the world the message that we do not support drone warfare, and on-going war.
Help us make this one of the biggest stands against drone warfare at Beale yet! Won’t you please come and bring friends?
