Indian Springs, NV – On Friday, April 1, morning traffic at Creech Air Force Base was diverted by dozens of peace and justice activists attempting to shut down the armed drone attack program through nonviolent civil resistance. At 7:45 a.m., eleven peaceful resisters were arrested at the two main gates of Creech. At 10:00 a.m. another six were arrested at the main East Gate while blocking the entrance with “crime scene” tape, referring to the criminal activity of weaponized drone terrorism conducted at Creech, killing thousands of non-combatants and civilians over the past decade.

These arrests, conducted by Las Vegas Metropolitan police, were the last waves of repression this week from Clark County, which has failed to investigate or stop the alleged extra-judicial assassinations conducted at Creech. Fourteen of the justice and peace activists arrested on April 1 received citations for jaywalking, and three received citations for trespassing on federal property.

Some of the activists are being held in jail over the weekend.

Nevada Desert Experience (NDE) is an active non-profit organization in support of this week’s anti-killer-drone protests at Camp Justice. Camp Justice is organized by Veterans For Peace, Code Pink, NDE, and Voices for Creative Nonviolence.

Sacred Peace Walk: 28 March – 3 April, 2015

Dear Friend,

Immediately below are the links to the Nevada Desert Experience Sacred Peace Walk schedule and registration. For years I have been inviting you to this transformative spiritual journey which brings together both the inner journey and outer manifestations of compassionate change, a process of love and affirmation that works so beautifully that many of us return year after year. We affirm civil resistance at Creech AFB and the Nevada National Site, (formerly the Nevada Test Site.

Everything is here to register, quickly and easily. Please do! This walk is for all who wish to experience an integrated spiritual experience and who are willing to look into the soul’s mirror under the clear desert sky. This is a walk into the wild and beautiful Mojave. We will meet demons and goddesses and flying robotic killing machines. At the end of the walk we will confront one of humanities gravest mistakes, nuclear weapons. With our gentle and tender love we continue the process of at-one-ment. Please join us and know the joy and hope, the friendship and community which grows so bountifully with each step taken.
