IMAGES FROM KEEP SPACE FOR PEACE WEEK
October 4-12, 2008

Each fall the Global Network organizes a week of local actions to help build consciousness about the need to prevent a new arms race in space.  We urge local groups to hold a protest, show a space video, meet with their member of Congress, organize a public teach-in, or hand out leaflets on the street about space issues.

Keep Space for Peace Week will be co-sponsored by the Women's International League for Peace & Freedom and Europe for Peace.

This table demonstrates results of a recent study, which found that public dollars invested in health care, education, mass transit, or construction for home weatherization and infrastructure create more jobs than investing an equivalent amount in the military
(or in tax breaks)

In fact, twice as many jobs are created by equivalent spending on education and mass transit as on the military.  The research was conducted by the Political Economy Research Institute (PERI) at the University of  Massachusetts Amherst. 

For more information, contact Miriam Pemberton at IPS (Miriam@ips-dc.org), or Marie Rietmann of WAND (Rietmann@wand.org).
