Last year nearly 150 activists joined us from 20 different states across the country, including over 50 veterans. In a very successful resistance action, we were able to interrupt business as usual for nearly an hour, with 34 activists ultimately arrested. Let's make SHUT DOWN CREECH 2016 an even more powerful stance against illegal drone killing. Please join us, and help spread the word. Together we are PEACE!

We will hold vigils daily, Mon.-Fri., March 28th to Apr. 1, during rush hour commute:6:00-8:00 am and 3:00 - 5:00 pm. Participants who can only join part of the week are urged to participate Wed.-Fri., Mar. 30 - Apr. 1, when we hope to have the largest resistance....mass mobilization.

WHY WE PROTEST AT CREECH:
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. Recent independent research indicates that the identity of only one out of 28 victims of U.S. drone strikes is known beforehand. Though officials deny it, the majority killed by drones are civilians.

In 2014, it was leaked that the CIA's criminal drone assassination program, officially a separate operation from the Air Force's, has been piloted all along by Creech's super-secret Squadron 17. In November 2015, four Air Force drone veterans who were based at Creech wrote to President Obama, “We came to the realization that the innocent civilians we were killing only fueled the feelings of hatred that ignited terrorism and groups like ISIS, while also serving as a fundamental recruitment tool similar to Guantanamo Bay. This administration and its predecessors have built a drone program that is one of the most devastating driving forces for terrorism and destabilization around the world.”

Since 2009 dozens of activists have been arrested for allegedly trespassing at Creech, in attempts to stop the indiscriminate killing and burning of innocent people by drones.

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. Creech is where the killer drone program started--it is where we shall end it.

-We must put an end to this desecration of our Mother Earth and all creatures who inhabit it.
-We must put an end to the dehumanization of lives from Ferguson to Palestine to Syria and Yemen.
-We must close all foreign U.S. military bases. Money for human needs.
-We must put an end to drone murder, drone surveillance and global militarization.
