Report on the Results:  On Oct 6, peace groups in Maine recognized Keep Space for Peace Week by holding a vigil outside Bath Iron Works (BIW) during a shift change. BIW is owned by General Dynamics. It makes naval destroyers, including the Aegis Destroyer which is outfitted with missile defense systems currently deployed throughout the Asian Pacific region. The thirty vigilers held signs encouraging BIW to convert from a facility making war ships to one that makes windmills, solar panels, rail cars, and other means for ending war and addressing the issues of global warming.
