Resisting the Militarization of Space

On the opening day of the 25th annual conference of the Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space -- held in Huntsville, Alabama, April 7-9, home of the Pentagon's 'missile defense' directorate and many other space weapons systems -- activists Bruce Gagnon, Dave Webb, Ken Jones, Hyun Lee and Yasuo Ogata addressed a news conference, telling of the costs and dangers of missile defense and of weaponizing space.
