On Dec. 28, 2023, about 150 people peacefully converged at Travis AFB, to protest Travis' role in the ongoing illegal and brutal genocide and slaughter of the people of Gaza. Ultimately 14 peacemakers were arrested. Please support the Travis 14 in court: Arraignment on February 23, Fairfield, CA

WE WILL KEEP RETURNING UNTIL THE BOMBING ENDS, and much needed humanitarian aid and essential services are provided. STOP THE GENOCIDE! FREE PALESTINE NOW!

BACKGROUND: Travis Air Force Base in Fairfield, is the largest transport AF base in the U.S. and is actively transporting weapons & military supplies directly to Israel, to aid and abet in Israel's ceaseless bombing of Gaza. Travis is therefore complicit in genocide. Over 30,000 Palestinians have been killed, mostly women and children. Half the homes in Gaza have been destroyed and the majority of the population have been displaced. Journalists, hospitals, ambulances, hospital workers and patients, many in critical condition have all been targeted. Healthcare services for those with serious wounds are almost non-existent due to severe shortages of both essential medical supplies and medical workers. With the mass displacement of nearly 2 million people, amidst severe shortages of food, water, fuel, and shelter, the reality is dire for all Gazans.
