CPJC activists have led anti-militarization demonstrations at the site of Beale Air Force Base for many years, including protests against the Iraq war and military escalation in southwest Asia and around the world. Currently, monthly demonstrations focus upon the U.S. military use of drones to attack overseas and US-born peoples.

Drones allow aggressors to destroy targets and kill suspects extrajudicially, including children and innocent people, from a computer thousands of miles away. They can spy intimately on anyone, including citizens in the US, and can commit assassinations in defiance of international and U.S. law. 50 nations now have drones — an expanding insane proliferation.
Occupy Beale AFB demands an end to Drone Warfare, Surveillance, Proliferation by the U.S. Government and the CIA. Specifically:
- An immediate ban on the use of all drones for extrajudicial killing.
- A halt to all drone surveillance that assaults basic freedoms and inalienable rights and terrorizes domestic life in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen and Somalia.
- A prohibition on the sale, and distribution of drones and drone technology to foreign countries in order to prevent the proliferation of this menacing threat to world peace, freedom and security.
- An end to lawless US drone warfare that violates many international laws and treaties.
