The following announcement from Toby Blome firstname.lastname@example.org:
Bay Area CODEPINK has been returning annually to Creech AFB in Nevada since 2009 to resist drone warfare. Creech is the most important center for the United States' illegal and brutal targeted killing operations by drones, and it is where hundreds of children from Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia and elsewhere have been murdered remotely under the top command of the CIA. This October we are trying something new. The drone resistance movement is growing worldwide and after such a successful collaborative action during last year's SHUT DOWN CREECH, CODEPINK is organizing a two phase extended action at Creech this October. In the first phase we are inviting activists from all organizations for a mass 3 DAY Mobilization. The second phase will be a women only CODEPINK Retreat and Drone Resistance Week. We hope you will join us for one of these actions, and, of course, women are encouraged to join both, if able.
And mark your 2016 calendars:
