Report on the Results:  About 50 people gathered at Vandenberg Air Force Base near Lompoc, California to support Keep Space for Peace Week and call for an end to the space militarization program pursued at the base. That same week--which was also the United Nations World Space Week, celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Outer Space Treaty, which seeks to ensure the peaceful uses of space for the benefit of all humankind--the US military announced plans to install the fourth interceptor missile for the multibillion dollar missile defense installation at Vandenberg. The demonstration was co-sponsored by the Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space, the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF), the Vandenberg Action Coalition, and the Guadalupe Catholic Worker.
