Las Vegas Nevada -- Disturbing images of children killed and mutilated by U.S. drones are shown in graphic and controversial television commercials that began airing in Las Vegas on Monday/Oct. 26 on CNN, MSNBC, ESPN and other cable networks.

The commercials are airing in conjunction with 14 trials starting Monday in Las Vegas of anti-drone demonstrators arrested last March at protests at Creech AFB. The trials begin at 1 p.m. this Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

Additionally, a series of protests at Creech AFB's drone center -- the major drone operating and training facility in the nation -- will be held all this week by CodePink and other people opposed to the U.S. drone program.

Sponsored by Know Drones, the commercials also ran last February and March in Las Vegas -- it was the first time any anti-drone advertising had appeared on U.S. television. Since then, the spots have run near drone operation centers from California to New York.

The 15-second commercial shows an image from a drone operations video screen, an explosion, civilians searching through rubble after the drone attack, a Hellfire missile loaded onto a drone and images of children killed and mutilated by the attack.

On-screen text charges "Drone Killing Violates Law and Morality," and then ends with a plea for "Drone Pilots. Please Refuse to Fly. No one has to obey an immoral law."

The television spot's appeal to pilots to "Refuse to Fly" is aimed at Creech AFB drone pilots, sensor operators, support personnel and their families as well as the general public.

"We produced this spot to make the point as powerfully as possible that drone killing is horrifying, illegal and immoral," said Nick Mottern, coordinator of KnowDrones.com.
