Doing My Part TO GROUND THE DRONES
There are several ‘tenets’ working together to make these drones happen: these are the ‘tenets’ we will address:
OPERATORS: Air Force and Marine Pilots
WEDs & THURs, noon – 1:30pm MRS (Marine Recruiting Station), Berkeley
Here is where our vulnerable youth are recruited to become pilots, learning how to fly manned and unmanned bombers. These youth need to hear our voices, to engage in dialogue, to hand out materials for their information. Come stand with us on Wednesdays, or pick your own day and time. The MRS is open 5 days a week, 8:30am until 5:00pm, Saturdays 9:00 until 3, and by appointment!
BASES of Operations: Air Force Bases Creech, Hanover, &?
Last week in September/beginning October: CREECH AFB, Indian Springs, Nevada This Air Force Base is located 35 miles north of Las Vegas in the striking Mohave Desert. It is also a stone’s throw from the old above-ground nuclear testing site. This is where most of the drones are operated from, and where soldiers learn to fly them. Indigenous Peoples, the Nevada Desert Experience, the Nevada Peace Movement all work to rid the desert of this horrific continuing and escalating destruction paid for by our tax dollars. There is a wonderful Goddess Temple there that will house women activists. One day this could expand to a Women’s NO DRONES Encampment.
MANUFACTURES Ryan Aeronautical Center, Northrup Grumman Corp. - San Diego, Tele Air International - Oxnard, CA – are only 2 of the places we know of that manufacture these assassins. We will protest on our way to Creech
PUBLIC & MEDIA Few are aware let alone willing to take action against the DRONES. We will get media attention & inform the public
