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.

Solidarity message for California Space X protest



Solidarity message for Space X (Elon Musk) protest

It is a great honor to share words of solidarity with those assembled today in protest of the dangerous and deadly efforts by Elon Musk to contaminate the heavens and Earth with thousands of satellites for 5G. Congratulations to all for speaking out in this crucial moment.

The Global Network Against Weapons & Nuclear Power in Space was created in 1992 to protect space from a new arms race and from the rush by the nuclear industry to position nuclear power on the planetary bodies. Our members around the world proudly stand with you today.

In order for Musk, and other greedy power mongers, to launch the massive numbers of satellites for their new 5G Empire, they need more spaceports.  And thus our members are working around the planet to oppose the construction of these new launch facilities. 

The more launches that happen the greater the impacts will be on the Earth’s ozone layer – thus making an already bad climate crisis even worse. Putting tens of thousands of new satellites in Earth orbit will also dramatically worsen the already huge problem of space junk.

We too have deep concerns about Musk’s arrogant plans to ‘Nuke Mars’ and ‘Occupy Mars’ and to explode 10,000 nuclear bombs over the dusty red planet in order to turn it green.  Talk about insanity!

And finally Space X has signed contracts to launch satellites for the Pentagon’s new ‘Space Force’ which means he is directly helping to further militarize space.  War in space is the last thing we need!

Most in the public know little about these issues.  We look forward to working with each of you in the future to shut down 5G operations and to Keep Space for Peace!

Best wishes always,

Bruce K. Gagnon  

This message was read at the rally today in southern California outside the HQ of Elom Musk's SpaceX
