Gaza & Palestine takes Center Stage:  As the horrors in Gaza continue ceaselessly, Shut Down Drone Warfare Week will highlight the Israeli-U.S. genocidal campaign against Palestine in our week of nonviolent actions.  Holloman Drone Base graduates 700+ pilots and operators annually.  Graduates from Holloman play critical roles in the ever-expanding U.S. Empire, that includes illegal, racist surveillance and targeted assassination BY DRONES against non-European communities around the world, including in Gaza!  THIS MUST STOP!  

Join our peace-loving tribe at Holloman as we expose U.S. war crimes, promote military resistance and educate and foster critical thinking in the Alamogordo community.

Lots of “Down Time” to nurture our peace-loving community, make life-long friendship bonds, and explore the abundant beauty of the southern N.M. desert region.  Daily excursions planned. Bring your music, song, poetry, writings to share and uplift us!  Let’s heal and dance at our revolution as we deconstruct U.S. hegemony!

The basics that we can provide:
Group campground site at Oliver Lee Memorial State Park;
small donation suggested to pay for overall cost, no one turned away for lack of funds.
(Hotel options in Alamogordo are available for those who can’t camp)
