National Mobilization to Peacefully Stop U.S. Drone Wars Fall Action: September 26 – October 2, 2021 (Sunday through Saturday) Our Fall Action is dedicated to The Defenseless Drone Victims living under and terrorized daily by U.S. Drones. We thank all the courageous drone whistleblowers, whose actions helped give a voice for the voiceless drone victims around the globe. Drone whistleblower Daniel Hale is currently serving 45 months in jail for unveiling the truth about the covert and brutal U.S. Drone Assassination Program. Know and support Daniel Hale at: StandWithDanielHale.org. Our demand: Prosecute all drone base commanders and higher up U.S. officials most responsible for drone war crimes. Pardon Daniel Hale, who exposed the drone war crimes! FREE DANIEL HALE NOW! UPDATE: Our 2021 weeklong fall convergence to resist U.S. killer drones in the Nevada desert has been scheduled! We can’t wait to work together again to nonviolently oppose the barbaric and deadly U.S. drone assassination program at Creech AFB that terrorizes communities around the world. Shut Down Creech, (SDC) co-sponsored by CODEPINK and Veterans For Peace, is a national campaign to “shut down” the criminal U.S. drone terror program. The campaign is a call for coast to coast mobilization for bi-annual week-long resistance in the spring and fall, at Creech Air Force Base, a principal drone control base in Indian Springs, Nevada, an hour north of Las Vegas. Using the powerful tool of nonviolent Gandhian resistance and peaceful protest, we uncover the lies and misinformation, educate, break the silence and put our bodies on the line for the global defenseless living under the daily terror of remotely controlled U.S. militarized drones. We invite other organizations to join this important campaign. The Registration Form is available HERE. Please fill out this form even if you are not yet sure about coming in the fall. A transportation form, asking about your travel plans to/from SDC, will be available in early September. We are committed to a full week of nonviolent resistance, in a united front to oppose U.S. killer drones. Due to the persistence of the COVID-19 pandemic, we will continue to take the necessary precautions to minimize health risks for all “Creechers” participating. Formal Covid-safe guidelines for SDC will be available on this website shortly. All activities will take place outdoors. We plan to wear face masks as needed, observe social distancing, require tent camping for overnight sleeping at Camp Justice and take other precautions to keep everyone safe. We will open the event to those who must fly or take other public transportation to Las Vegas to attend, but we ask those who do fly to be extra diligent in abiding by safety precautions. We ask that all Creechers weigh the risks carefully, and assume full responsibility for their health. The final registration form that will be available in early September will detail the measures we will follow. We will offer assistance with transportation from/to Las Vegas/airport and to/from Camp Justice/Goddess Temple in a covid-safe manner. For further details please check the Housing & Transportation page on this website, and await the final registration and transportation forms in early September. Please note that both vaccinated and un-vaccinated participants will be participating, as the organizers respect an individual’s right to choose. All participants are expected to abide by the Covid-safe guidelines established by the Shut Down Creech team when participating in any event activities to ensure everyone’s safety. Please feel free to contact us for any questions or concerns you may have. This year marks the 12th anniversary of Bay Area CODEPINK’s twice yearly resistance to killer drones at Creech Air Force Base. In 2015 additional organizations began collaborating with us, which evolved into the national mobilizations now known as “Shut Down Creech.” Please join us to help make our upcoming resistance even more exceptional! Special themes: This October marks the 20th Anniversary of the War on Afghanistan, one of the very poorest countries on earth. Despite Biden’s promises to withdraw from Afghanistan, we are skeptical that any meaningful change in US policy will occur. Hence, we will continue to stand in solidarity with the Afghan people and their right to live without U.S. occupiers and drone attacks. We will stand in solidarity of the people of Yemen who have been under the worst humanitarian crisis in the world for years, exacerbated by U.S. support for the ongoing Saudi and UAE’s massive bombing campaign. We will stand in support of the people of Iran and China who are forever threatened by an aggressive U.S. foreign policy. We stand in support of Somalia, and other African nations who are are constantly battling U.S. hegemony and secret U.S. military interventionism. Bring all the troops home now! Close all U.S. foreign bases. WAR IS NEVER THE ANSWER! Please come for part or all of this amazing Peace Convergence to nonviolently resist the terror of the illegal U.S. drone assassination program, and the global domination policies of the U.S. that cause severe suffering and death of millions around the world. We will stay at CAMP JUSTICE, our peace encampment now located on the “Goddess Temple” grounds, 3 miles from Creech AFB. More detailed information will follow. All meals are provided.
