“There is No Appeal from Drone Strikes. Our Grief is Still Not a Cry for War”
14 People were arrested in April 2009 for crossing onto Creech Air Force Base near Las Vegas for attempting to stop or at least dialog with commanders of the Predator and Reaper remotely piloted “drones” that are either protecting US forces or are inciting outrage and endless war because they are killing civilians and being used questionably against people in violation of international and US law, depending on your perspective.
The DA (or someone) reversed themselves and belatedly decided to prosecute the activists, some of whom have served in the military or have seen first-hand the destruction in Pakistan and Afghanistan caused by drone and other US air strikes.
Tuesday, Sept. 14
Trial of Creech 14 defendants:
Regional Justice Center, 200 Lewis Ave.,
Las Vegas, 5th Floor (Regional Court, Department 5):
7:30 am rally in at Lewis and 3rd St.; 8:30 am trial scheduled to begin.
It is unclear how long the trial will last: the morning, all day, more
than a day?
