Tuesday, December 7 Capitol Calling Party: Abolish the Space Force!

Tuesday, December 7 Capitol Calling Party: Abolish the Space Force!

On Tuesday, December 7, join CODEPINK Congress as we say NO to U.S. full spectrum dominance of the air, sea, land, and now SPACE! The U.S. Space Force was established under Trump through the FY2020 National Defense Authorization Act, despite the United States' commitment under the Outer Space Treaty of 1967 which restricts the placement of weapons of mass destruction in space and bans military maneuvers on celestial bodies. Now Biden is on board with the Space Force, too - why? Let's talk about the militarization of space, the escalation of the arms race, and the importance of protecting the heavens from earthling arms dealers.

Special Guests:

Karl Grossman is a full professor of journalism at the State University of New York/College at Old Westbury who has specialized in practicing and teaching investigative reporting. He is the author of Weapons in Space and The Wrong Stuff and writer and presenter of the TV documentary Nukes In Space: The Nuclearization and Weaponization of the Heavens. For 31 years, he has hosted the nationally-aired TV program “Enviro Close-Up with Karl Grossman". He has given presentations on space issues widely including multiple times at the UN and before members of the British Parliament.
Bruce Gagnon is the Coordinator of the Global Network Against Weapons & Nuclear Power in Space and is a Vietnam-era veteran who regularly protests the Navy shipyard in Bath, Maine. Getting his start as a state coordinator of the FL Coalition for Peace and Justice, Gagnon has worked on space issues for more than 20 years. Valuable resources on the moon and planets form the next battleground for corporate profit, he says, and "defense" programs such as "Star Wars" actually are conceived as offense.

Capitol Calling Party

Join our Capitol Calling Party as we call and write our House members to co-sponsor H.R. 5335, which would abolish the Space Force to de-escalate the arms race.
