Nevada: 8 Arrested for Blocking Entrance to Drone Base

HeadlineApr 01, 2016

In Nevada, eight people were arrested blockading two gates to the Creech Air Force Base. The base is one of several homes for the U.S. military’s lethal drone program in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Somalia, Yemen and other countries. Six of the eight protesters arrested Thursday are veterans. The action is the first in a two-week mobilization at the base demanding it be shut down.
