26 Arrested at Drone War Base in Nevada
Resistance Continues at Creech Air Force Base in Indian Springs, Nevada
On Friday, April 1st, at Creech AFB in Indian Springs, Nevada, morning traffic was diverted by dozens of peace and justice activists attempting to shut down the armed drone attack program through nonviolent civil resistance. At 7:45 twelve peaceful resisters were arrested at the two main gates of Creech. At 10:00 another six were arrested at the main East Gate while blocking the entrance with "crime scene" tape, referring to the criminal activity of weaponized drone terrorism conducted at Creech, killing thousands of non-combatants and civilians over the past decade.

"We are acting in solidarity with whistleblowers and current drone warriors who have suffered moral injury from their work at Creech, yet who are unable to take this kind of direct action without severe consequences, and on behalf of victims of drone war crimes," said Renee Espeland of Iowa who was arrested at the middle gate of Creech yesterday.
