The Global Network’s 25th anniversary Space Organizing Conference will be at the home of Redstone Arsenal and the Space & Missile Defense Command, also known as the ‘Pentagon of the South.’ The effort by the Pentagon to develop and deploy the next generation of Star Wars weapons will increase global instability and cost hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars. The US Space Command has long maintained its mission is to create the technologies to ‘control and dominate’ space and the Earth below – ultimately on behalf of corporate interests. This conference will allow citizens to learn more about these important issues and meet leaders from the growing international movements to Keep Space for Peace and Stop NATO expansion. On Saturday, April 8, at 2 PM, a day long public conference will be held at the Lowe Mill that will include panels, speakers and music.
