A Convergence For Peace in the Nevada Desert
Join us April 23-29th at Creech Air Force Base, Indian Springs, Nevada for the 3rd Annual national mobilization of nonviolent resistance to shut down killer drone operations in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia and everywhere. Sponsored by CODEPINK, Nevada Desert Experience, Veterans For Peace, and Voices for Creative Nonviolence!
In 2005, Creech Air Force Base secretly became the first U.S. base in the country to carry out illegal, remotely controlled assassinations using the MQ-1 Predator drones, and in 2006, the more advanced Reaper drones were added to its arsenal. Creech drone personnel sit behind computers in the desert north of Las Vegas and kill “suspects” thousands of miles away.
The US drone program is rapidly proliferating as air bases are being converted to drone bases across the U.S. and abroad, but Creech remains the primary air base in U.S. state-sponsored global terrorism. President Obama has left this technology of terror for the new Trump administration and our resistance to it has never been more urgent. Creech is where the killer drone program started–it is where we shall end it.
