Countering the Militarisation of Space

Global Network board member Atsushi Fujioka in Japan writes:

We had a people's gathering to say No to the construction of the US Army's
X-band radar site [aimed at China] on Kyogamisaki in Kyoto, which will be a
first US base in Kansai region of 30 million population. 1,400 people
including many local people, with more than 20 buses, gathered at the
auditorium of Ukawa Middle School. In the opening session, I talked and
introduced Global Networks message of solidarity, mentioning this is
probably the first demonstration which was connected with GN's events
commemorating the Keep Space for Peace Week. I also mentioned GN 's annual
meeting will be held in Kyoto in next July 29-Aug 2, and lots of activist
will come to this auditorium to say No to the US 'Missile Defense' site.
