Peace Activist Opposes Niagara Falls Air Base Use of Drones Speaks to ‘Drones in Our Community? Why We Must Say “No!”’

October 28, 2014

Monday, November 3, at 7pm, peace activist Mark Colville will speak at Hallwalls Contemporary Art Center (341 Delaware Ave, Buffalo) on "the war crimes perpetrated in drone bases; those standing up against them; and the price to be paid if we allow drone use to spread."

Colville, 53, is a member of the Amistad Catholic Worker house of hospitality in New Haven, Connecticut, where he lives with his wife, Luz Catarineau, four children and a community of friends. Colville has collaborated with the Upstate Coalition to Ground the Drones and End the Wars.

He is currently awaiting sentencing for an act of civil resistance in which he attempted to deliver flowers and a People's Order of Protection for the People of Afghanistan to the commander of the 174th Attack Wing at Hancock Airbase in Syracuse. His sentencing hearing is Dec. 3 and he faces two years and 45 days.

The Niagara Falls Air Base began its new mission on April 1, 2014.

According to Colville, "Soon they will be assassinating, maiming, and terrorizing innocent people around the world. The military claims they will be doing the same thing as their counterparts at the Hancock base. The Resist Militarism! Task Force of the WNY Peace Center, sponsor of the event, says, “No they won’t. We don’t need assassin jobs in WNY.”
