The arms race is moving into space. The U.S. Space Command, headquartered in Colorado Springs, Colorado, has publicly stated that it intends "to control space in order to protect U.S. interests and investments." It is crucial that the movement to stop this new round in the arms race moves quickly ahead.

While the satellites orbiting miles above our heads may be out of our sight, the ground stations they depend upon, such as Menwith Hill, UK; Pine Gap, Australia; and Buckley Air Force Base, Colorado, are vast bases with worldwide impact. Help us connect the dots by organizing a local action during Keep Space for Peace Week. Stop the militarization of space!
