Protest at Beale Air Force Base in California

By Chris Nelson

beale-afb-cnv2016Beale Air Force Base (outside of Marysville, California) is visited for an evening and morning shift change by concerned citizens once a month. The Base is home to the Global Hawk UAV (drone) which is used in surveillance and targeting of human beings in countries around the world the U.S. is not at war with.

It is part of an insidious and evil program of assassination carried out in the name of the war on terror. Thousands are killed, injured, homes and livelihoods lost, children traumatized year after year in poor countries that cannot defend themselves.

We say #Enough! In solidarity with all peace-loving people who just want to live their lives as well as with all those who suffer grave losses and the millions of refugees created by the widening wars. The #Enough campaign was developed by young Afghans who are trying to bring sanity into their own precarious lives– http://ourjourneytosmile.com/blog/

As part of our Campaign Nonviolence commitment this year five Northern California women walked onto the base after making heartfelt statements about why we were risking arrest to alert American citizenry about the critical nature of Endless War. We appreciate the Week Of Nonviolence and urge others to organize to stop war and drone killing. Find out more about us at Occupy Beale AFB on facebook. Join us if you are in the area!

Part of the Campaign Nonviolence Week of Actions 2016
