With a new administration in Washington it will be a challenge to get the 'liberals' to hold Biden-Harris to the few 'progressive promises' they made during their campaign. Biden is bringing back many of Bush & Obama's neo-cons to head his foreign policy. I'll be on this case without hesitation.

Assorted space week pix: Australia, US, Sicily, & England

At the Cairns Esplanade Lagoon in Australia (Click on the photos for a better view)

At the White House in Washington during the weekly Catholic Worker protest

On the street in Montrose, California

Meeting with students at Andhra University, Visakhapatnam, India.  There were more events across this city than anywhere else.

Excellent poster from our friends in Sicily.  Says it all.  Wake up America!

Protest sit-in at the gate of the U.S. Naval Radio Transmitter Facility (NRTF) in Niscemi, Sicily. The M.U.O.S. (Mobile User Objective System) is a U.S. Naval Computer and Telecommunications Station. A constellation of five satellites covers the whole world, whereas ground communication is made possible by four stations, one of which is located in Niscemi. Sicilians are worried about consequences of the installation on: human health, the ecosystem, the quality of agricultural production, right to mobility and to the development of territory, right to peace and security of our homeland and of its inhabitants.  Protest was organized by No MUOS.

More of  No MUOS protest outside the US high-tech base in Sicily.

Vigil at Lockheed Martin in Sunnyvale, California. Although there were no arrests, Lockheed Martin did close their main gate, and route people around to another gate. They closed the gate as activists approached with their banner.

One of my favorite signs from the space week protests - this one at the US Croughton AFB in England.


Thanks to everyone who helped make Keep Space for Peace Week a successful effort again this year.
