Even in the bedrock of the south, at Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, the space week message was seen on the street.
Gun-Britt Mäkitalo (above) and Agneta Norberg (below) held a workshop about the resistance against Navy base on Jeju Island on October 13th. It was part of the one-day event called Inspiration the World at Workers Studiehouse in Stockholm, Sweden.
GN members Gun-Britt and Agneta came to our 20th annual conference on Jeju Island last February and were among those of us who were arrested for crawling under razor wire to get onto sacred Gureombi coast. The Gangjeong village coast is currently being blasted and having cement poured over the rocks to build the docks for U.S. warships that will encircle China with "missile defense" systems.

India has more than 300 million people living in poverty.  The U.S. has pressured India to create a Space Command where they are now testing anti-satellite (ASAT) weapons as part of U.S. effort to "contain" China.

Peaceniks were up with the sun to hold a vigil at Raytheon in Tucson, Arizona.  Raytheon builds the "kill vehicle" for Pentagon "missile defense" systems.

Workers at Raytheon were greeted with this sign as they came to work.

Here are a few photos from Keep Space for Peace Week events around the world.  Our message continues to spread thanks to dedicated peace workers.
