People from across the country are making plans to be at Creech AFB outside Las Vegas, NV from March 4 - 6 for the "Shut Down Creech!" anti-drone war protests. This is an extremely important place to be if you can possibly make it.
Creech is a key center for the control of drone attacks and the training of drone operators. Creech, along with Beale AFB in California and Cannon AFB in New Mexico, have more drone operators than other drone bases, according to 2014 report from the Government Accountability Office.
"Shutdown Creech" comes at a very critical time when drone operators are under increasing physical and emotional stress because of new missions being laid on in the growing U.S. war against ISIS in Iraq and Syria, coming on top of sustaining drone attack levels in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia. U.S. drones are also believed to be attacking in Libya and possibly other places in Africa.
COME TO WASHINGTON DC FOR "SPRING RISING"
From March 18 through 21 people will be gathering in Washington for "Spring Rising - An anti-war intervention."
The idea for this marshaling of anti-war sentiment comes from Cindy Sheehan and from a call by Malachy Kilbride for a national mobilization that, hopefully, will peg the United States wars and militarism as a national issue that must be addressed.
Over the four-day event there will be:
- Visits to Congressional offices organized by Code Pink.
- A war criminals bus tour organized by Cindy, visiting government and corporate offices in DC.
- A teach-in organized by Debra Sweet, director of World Can't Wait.
- And a rally and march, to include the White House, organized by ANSWER.
Some groups are already organizing buses. If you are not able to attend, please create events where you are calling for a halt to the U.S. air war, drone attacks, U.S. targeted killing in all forms and U.S. occupation.
DON'T FORGET TO WRITE KATHY KELLY IN PRISON
Internationally recognized peace activist Kathy Kelly is serving a three-month prison term for crossing the line onto Whiteman Air Force Base property. She was attempting to deliver a letter to the base commander, asking him to stop his troops from piloting lethal drone flights over Afghanistan.
