Thu Oct 30 2014 (Updated 11/01/14)My Daughter and I Were Arrested by Military Police Guarding World's Most Hated Weapon
Thu Oct 30 2014 (Updated 11/01/14)Activists Continue to Blockade Beale Air Force Base to Protest Drone Assassinations
On October 28, father and a daughter Mauro Oliveira (Red Sun) and Mahai'a Sol helped blockade Beale Air Force base, which is east of Sacramento. They are free now, but they face Federal charges. For months, an affinity group of mostly Elder citizens has been setting up information outlets, banners, signage and even blockading the entrance to the base and triggering arrests, as part of Occupy Beale Air Force Base.
Mauro Oliveira writes:Before the sun rose our banners greeted the rapid flow of vehicles, including drone pilots, entering the base. We sang spirited songs as wild horses ran ecstatically in the distance. We then all moved into the road and blockaded the entrance and exit. State Highway moved in and huddled with the base MPs.
My daughter has stood against war all her life and today was no different. As the guards attempted to avert an arrest and close the gate, effectively completing our blockade, my daughter and I slid thru and triggered our military arrest. We want drones to end and until THAT day, my family wants it to be clear to the victims of drone strikes and to the entire world, that we believe in Peace, not war and consider drone strikes as a war crime against humanity and an act against the Creators greatest gift, the Children of the world, of which we all are.
