FAIRFIELD, California (December 27, 2923) — East Bay CODEPINK, in collaboration with various local peace organizations, announces a peaceful rally and protest at Travis Air Force Base in Fairfield. This demonstration aims to draw attention to the base’s active involvement in shipping military supplies directly to Israel, contributing to the ongoing genocide in Gaza.

Rally sponsors include Nevada County Peace & Justice Center, Occupy Beale AFB,,, United Front Committee for a Labor Party, Extinction Rebellion Peace, and Youth4Palestine. The action is also endorsed by Veterans For Peace, National and Veterans For Peace, San Francisco Chapter.

Travis Air Force Base, recognized as the largest transport Air Force base in the U.S., has become a focal point of concern due to its role in aiding and abetting Israel’s relentless bombing of Gaza.

The base is alleged to be complicit in the loss of over 20,000 Palestinian lives, including more than 8,000 children. Gaza’s infrastructure has been devastated, with 1/2 to 1/3 of homes destroyed, leaving civilians, hospitals, ambulances, hospital workers, and journalists as repeated targets.

The urgent need for medical care in Gaza is exacerbated by severe shortages of essential medical supplies and medical workers. Thousands of wounded individuals face inadequate medical attention, contributing to the gravity of the humanitarian crisis. The majority of Palestinians in Gaza have been displaced from their homes, grappling with severe shortages of food, water, fuel, and shelter due to Israel’s harsh siege.

In response to the dire situation, East Bay CODEPINK and local peace organizations are rallying to say, “ENOUGH is ENOUGH!” The protest outside Travis Air Force Base will serve as a platform to hold the base accountable for its role in contributing to the ongoing genocide in Gaza.
