Space Week Events Underway

We are starting to get some feedback from folks around the world who are organizing Keep Space for Peace Week events during October 3-10. 
The video above is from the protest at the US space surveillance and communications base at Croughton in Northamptonshire, England.

This photo is from the first of several events planned in Nagpur, India during space week.  Other events are also scheduled in several other cities throughout India as well.

Following our October 3 event at Bath Iron Works (BIW) in Maine we gathered in front of the shipyard administration building for a photo.  We'll be back here for another vigil again on Thursday, Oct 15 as the Maine Peace Walk passes through Bath at the time of the 3:30 pm shift change.

Then we also plan to return on Saturday, October 31 at the time of the next 'christening' of another Aegis destroyer from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm. Thousands of people come for the ceremony so there will be a huge crowd for us to communicate with on that day.
