Great Start to Keep Space for Peace Week

This photo came to me this morning from Nick Deane in Australia.  His short note read "Things are even happening in Sydney, Australia."  It's a joy to think about how ideas can spread all around the globe.  Can't keep the truth down for long.

Yesterday the photo below came my way from Global Network board member MacGregor Eddy in California.  It was from a protest at Beale AFB in that state (the base I lived at when I graduated from high school in 1970.  My step-father worked at the base on the cameras for the SR-71 'Blackbird' spy plane.)  

MacGregor wrote:

Early KS4P event at Beale AFB in Marysville, CA, 2 arrests on Sept 28, 9 arrestees pictured above on Sept 30th, lots more protesters, but the arrested included four veterans and two clergy and one Global Network board member, aka yours truly. I am on the far left in this photo, Beale is home of the U-2 spy plane and now the Global Hawk drone.

A great start to Keep Space for Peace Week.
