Event Name:  Petition to U.S. Senate on supporting Prevention of an Arms Race in Outer Space
Event Description:  In cooperation with the international PAROS working group and Global Network WILPF will post an on line petition on October 10. We will invite signatures on a short letter to U.S. Senators asking them to urge the President, Secretary of State and Secretary of Defense to support a U.S. YES vote on the UN General Assembly Resolution on Prevention of an Arms Race in Outer Space (PAROS).

Report on the Results:  Here is the message sent to thousands with an invitation to sign a petition to our U.S. Senators: The U.S. has been the only nation in the world to vote NO on a United Nations resolution to Prevent an Arms Race in Outer Space (PAROS). However a PAROS treaty is our best alternative to space weaponization and war in, from and through space. Critical votes on this issue will again come before the U.N. General Assembly in November and December. Organizations and individual signers were referred to http://www.reachingcriticalwill.org/legal/paros/wgroup.html for background information. (Note: 70 organizations and 200 individuals signed the petition. Petitions were hand delivered by WILPF to foreign policy staff in 66 Senate offices with constituents who signed the petition.)
