LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL
03/06/2015

INDIAN SPRINGS — Metro police arrested Father Louis Vitale and 32 others early Friday for trespassing at Creech Air Force Base where 140 peace activists had gathered to protest U.S. drone operations in the Middle East and Afghanistan that are controlled remotely at the base, 45 miles northwest of Las Vegas.

The protesters, who anticipated as many as 30 arrests for civil disobedience, blame operators of remotely piloted Predator and Reaper aircraft for killing innocent civilians in their attempts to curb overseas terrorist attacks with laser-guided Hellfire missiles and smart bombs.

“Shut down Creech!” the throng chanted after Las Vegas police gave a five-minute warning for the crowd to disperse as base personnel arrived at 7:20 a.m.

“This is an outrage to God and the universe,” Vitale, a Franciscan priest from Oakland, Calif., said as he knelt on the base side of a white line on an entrance road.

“Here we are reaching out thousands of miles away and killing people. It’s a horrible thing,” he said as police approached to apprehend him. “I have talked to people here that work on the drones … scared to death and say, ‘I love the Air Force but can’t stand what I do.’ ”

The protest was nonviolent. No one was injured.

Creech officials provided a reaction to a Review-Journal query early in the week that quotes the 432nd Wing commander, Col. Jim Cluff.

“We respect the members’ rights to protest peacefully, and as we’ve done in the past,” he said. “We are working closely with civilian law enforcement to ensure safety of those entering and exiting the base, as well as the safety of those protesting off base.”

In all, about 25 were arrested in three waves of civil disobedience actions outside two base entrances. They were arrested on state misdeamnor charges of trespass or pedestrian in the roadway.

The protest was organized by contingents of peace and faith-based activists, including those from the Nevada Desert Experience, Veterans for Peace and Code Pink, of Women for Peace.
