Creech Air Force Base Breaks International Law
Three Arrested Trying to Stop Creech Crimes

Three prayerful civilians were arrested at Creech Air Force Base at 7:05 AM on Sept. 21 while trying to enforce the International Day of Peace. One was charged with the alleged crime of “tresspassing on government land” and two were charged with the alleged crime of “pedestrian in roadway”. All were part of a larger demonstration of a dozen people holding vigil at Creech on this international holiday. All were released on-site with promises to appear later this fall on different court dates.

Kofi Anan of the UN says of the September International Day of Peace, the purpose of this single day each year is to “give relief workers a safe interlude for the provision of vital services… to allow all those engaged in conflict to reconsider the wisdom of further violence.” Therefore, NDE chose to have this year’s autumn prayer-actions for justice and peace in Southern Nevada coinciding with September 21st. Today’s arrests conclude the weekend of celebration of Justice For Our Desert

Not only does Creech fail to cease fire on this International Day of Peace, but, “the armed drone practice is to ‘double-tap’, that is, to send a second missile, targeting first responders and families coming to the aid of the wounded. This is a particularly heinous practice,” says Brian Terrell of Nevada Desert Experience (NDE).

This past weekend NDE sponsored “Justice for our Desert,” several prayer-activities held in solidarity with hundreds of demonstrations occurring in every state in the country sponsored by “Campaign Nonviolence” during the week of September 20-27–the span from International Peace Day through International Nuclear Weapons Elimination Day.
