Come along to this national march and rally with speakers including Paul Mobbs (Croughtonwatch), Peter Burt (Drones UK) and Maya Evans (Voices for Creative Non-violence’).
The US is spending £200m to turn USAF Croughton into one of its largest international intelligence hubs, building the new Joint Intelligence Analysis Centre (JIAC). This major US communication and intelligence base supports space communications, data links, military drone information, bomber guidance, missile defence, diplomatic communications, and command and control war fighting functions. It will be a key link in the ‘chain’ controlling US surveillance, armed drone and special forces operations across Europe, North Africa and the Middle East. A connected base is at Barford St John, Banbury, Oxfordshire.
We’ll be assembling near ‘RAF’ Croughton’s main gate. There will be a food stall, tea tent and a disabled toilet. Bring flags and banners!
Music will be provided by The Seagreen Singers and Nick Gill, and all vegetarian/vegan food contributions to the food stall are very welcome.
If coming by car, travel west on the B4031, past the main gate, turn left at mini-roundabout on eastern edge of Croughton village, and park at signed site, not at main gate.
A minibus will leave St Giles, Oxford at 10:45 and picking up at Oxford rail station at 11:00. Tickets £8 – pre-booking essential.
To book the minibus, or for any other enquiries, contact the Oxfordshire Peace Campaign by phoning 01865 248357 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
