Democracy Now: Anti-Drone Activists Convicted for Nevada Protest


In Nevada, 14 antiwar activists have been found guilty of trespassing for a 2009 protest against U.S. military drone attacks deployed from the Creech Air Force Base. The base is one of several homes for the American military’s aerial drone program in Pakistan and Afghanistan. The activists were charged with criminal trespassing for entering the base with a letter describing their opposition to the drone program. All 14 were sentenced to time already served. In a statement, the “Creech 14” vowed to continue opposing the drones through non-violent protest.
