Nevada: More Than a Dozen Activists Arrested at Creech AF Base

HeadlineApr 04, 2016

In Nevada, more than a dozen activists were arrested during a series of protests blockading access to the Creech Air Force Base on Friday to demand the base be closed down. Creech Air Force Base is one of several homes for the U.S. military’s lethal drone program in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Somalia, Yemen and other countries. During one of the protests on Friday, a group of children and adults dressed as angels and performed a mock drone attack on a funeral to protest U.S. drone strikes on funeral processions. A total of 25 activists have been arrested in a series of protests against the base over the last week.
