Up North – ‘RAF’ Fylingdales 12-3pm
Fylingdales is a US Ballistic Missile Early Warning and Missile Defence Radar in the heart of the North Yorks Moors. It has developed into an integral component in the command, control and communications network for the US missile defence project. This project is sparking a new arms race and is a key plank in allowing the U.S. to gain greater military dominance on earth and in space. Watch this video for an explaination of how Missile Defence systems work and the problems they cause.
Meet at Eller Beck, just to the north of Fylingdales on the A169 between Pickering and Whitby. There’ll be a marquee, food, hot drinks (and a loo!). Great performances – including from Bull The Band (https://www.facebook.com/BullTheBand/) Speakers include CND’s General Secretary Kate Hudson, Konni Schmidt from Germany’s Stop Ramstein campaign, John Bourton Chair of Veterans for Peace, and Denise Craghill, York Green Councillor.
