FEATURING TOBY BLOMÉ AND ELEANOR LEVINE – Activists with Code Pink and Veterans for Peace have gathered this week at Indian Springs, Nevada to call attention to the on-going US drone operation being conducted from Creech Air Force base.
The twice-yearly demonstrations have taken place for the past ten years but what is different this year is how the US has escalated its drone program especially since Donald Trump took office. There are some estimates that the secret program has tripled in size. Additionally the Trump administration has ended hard-won requirements to publish drone strike fatalities.
Over five days this week the activists in Nevada are holding twice-daily vigils each morning and afternoon.
