Come Occupy Beale AFB today and tomorrow!

In the wake of the Wheatland 4 being charged for demonstrations there last April, many who oppose drone warfare and surveillance like that being carried out by Global Hawk drones piloted from Beale, a base located near Sacramento, will hold a vigil there tonight, 2/24, between 6 and 9 PM and tomorrow morning between 6 and 9 AM. 

A vigil held last November created opportunities for dialogue.

Shirley Osgood was one of several brave demonstrators arrested in a past vigil
 for attempting to bear witness to the victims of drones like those operated at Beale.
Col. Anne Wright (ret.), famous for resigning in protest of the 2003 invasion of Iraq, will be in attendance at both demonstrations.
"I have served my country for almost thirty years in some of the most isolated
 and dangerous parts of the world. I want to continue to serve America.
 However, I do not believe in the policies of this Administration and cannot-
 morally or professionally- defend or implement them. It is with heavy
 heart that I must end my service to America and therefore resign..."
-Col. Anne Wright (ret)
