Report on the Results:  October 6, 2007: Members of Women's International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF) and the Palm Beach County Peace and Justice Coalition publicly protested U.S. space militarization on a busy street corner in West Palm Beach. They held signs reading Keep Space for Peace, No Arms Race in Outer Space, No Weapons in Space, and No New War. Hundreds of cars passed by, with drivers and passengers observing these signs urging peaceful, not military, uses of space. A 96 years young WILPF member held a Keep Space for Peace sign and a second sign promoting WILPF (at 92 itself, the world's oldest international women's peace organization). Passers-by stopped to chat and ask questions. One woman decided to join the vigil. Publicity for the event was primarily distributed by internet and mail to WILPF members and to members of the thirty peace and justice organizations that are affiliated with the protest's co-sponsor, the Palm Beach County Peace and Justice Coalition.
