Participate in Keep Space for Peace WeekPublished on September, 41 2017

Keep Space for Peace Week is October 7-14, 2017!
KS4P has been one of WILPF’s most important branch projects since the risky launch of the plutonium-fueled Cassini satellite in 1997.
Some of you may find this too much to handle, in addition to our nuclear abolition petition campaign on ending the whole nuclear era (see the related news article, WILPF Launches Petition Campaign to Support the Ban Treaty).
That is understandable, and participating is up to you and/or your branch. However, current tensions with Russia and North Korea are closely related, and show why our nation would also benefit from the ban treaty. Here are some links to Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space to help you explore the possibilities:

Invitation from Global Network to Participate in Keep Space for Peace Week
Since 2001, the Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space has organized Keep Space for Peace Week each October. Groups around the world are invited to hold local events during the week (October 7-14 this year) at US military bases, weapons manufacturing facilities, federal office buildings, and other manifestations of US military and foreign policy.
The goal of the week is to help expand public awareness about how expensive and destabilizing space technology now coordinates everything that the Pentagon does. This year we focus on the provocative THAAD deployments in South Korea and Guam.
WILPF has long been an annual co-sponsor of Keep Space for Peace Week. Let us know if you want multiple copies of the poster and we will send them to you. Also please let us know if you plan to hold an event during space week. Help us build the international movement to keep the arms race out of space.
Full spectrum resistance to full spectrum dominance!
