SHUT DOWN TRAVIS is Returning! On December 28, 150 people converged at Travis Air Force Base to protest their shipment of weapons that enable the indiscriminate killing of Gazans. Our peace communities collaborated to nonviolently close all 4 gates for up to 1-4 hrs at each gate. The Travis 14, who were arrested, now face arraignment in Fairfield on February 23. WATCH these powerful videos from Dec. 28:
This Wednesday, we are returning! We hope to have a presence at Travis every month until a Permanent Ceasefire is obtained.
