Stop the Military Takeover of Space

22 June @ 6:00 pm - 24 June @ 5:00 pm

The push for global domination relies heavily military satellites for surveillance, communication, command and control and the planning and execution of exercises and wars. However, military satellites require ground-based stations to send and receive information/commands – so a global military presence requires an extensive network of various bases and space centres. The Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space has campaigned to raise awareness of these issues, to help coordinate actions at related ground based installations and to “Keep Space for Peace” for 25 years. In 2018, we will be holding our Annual Space Organizing Conference in Oxford, England. This will also include a protest at the major US/NATO military space communications and control centre at nearby “RAF” Croughton.

Come and join us!
