Keep Space for Peace Week

International Days of Protest to Stop the Militarization of Space

October 4-11 2002


NO MISSILE DEFENSE!
NO WEAPONS IN SPACE!
NO NUCLEAR ROCKET!
STOP THE BUSH WAR ON THE WORLD!
SUPPORT THE KUCINICH SPACE BAN BILL!
KEEP SPACE FOR PEACE!
FUND HUMAN NEEDS!

Having seen the number of local actions double in 2001 (115 actions in 19 countries) the Global Network is calling for a week of events in 2002.  In addition to local protests at key space installations, groups are urged to organize events throughout the week that would include things like visits to political leaders, community teach-ins, meetings of religious leaders, visits to local schools, media work, and public displays.  Help us build this vital global movement to stop the nuclearization and weaponization of space.  Working together we can create a new consciousness about protecting space from the bad seed of war!
