Event Description:  A free public showing of an important film for International Keep Space for Peace Week. The film features Global Network Against Weapons & Nuclear Power in Space Coordinator Bruce Gagnon, Noam Chomsky and Apollo 14 astronaut Edgar Mitchell talking about the very real dangers of moving the arms race into space. The one-hour production features archival footage, Pentagon documents, and clearly outlines the U.S. plan to control and dominate space and the Earth below. Noam Chomsky talks about how the U.S. intends to use space technology to control the Earth and reminds the viewer that the U.S. refuses to negotiate a global ban on weapons in space. He also speaks about the role of the media in suppressing this important current issue. The screening is co-organized with the Nova Scotia Public Interest Research Group and Cinemapolitica.

Report on the Results:  The audience is always moved by the film. We had a 30 minute discussion about the issues the film raised and many people in the audience said they had no idea about the US plans to weaponize and dominate space. The audience was concerned about Canada's role and deep integration with the US military.
