EMF/RF/5G “Keep Space for Peace” World Space Week, Weeklong Events and Webinars Oct. 4-10 Worldwide
Compiled by Patricia Burke
The Global Action Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space reports,
“In 1999 the United Nations General Assembly declared that October 4-10 every year would be designated as ‘World Space Week’ to “celebrate the contributions of space science and tchnology to the betterment of the human condition” – we ask people to recognise this as a time to Keep Space for Peace.” – Space4Peace
In 2019 there were 40 actions in 10 countries.
Each year the Global Network provides a poster for use to highlight the Week of Actions and posts a list of the actions organised by our members. (A slide show of past activist art posters is available here.)

“A gold rush into space is now underway.”
There are tens of thousands of mini-satellites expected to be launched in coming years, mostly for 5G which will have military application for greater surveillance and targeting.
We can expect growing deterioration of the Earth’s ozone layer due to toxic rocket exhaust. More spaceports (often in environmentally sensitive areas) are being constructed to handle the glut in launches. Astronomers are angry as they witness the dark night sky covered in satellite trails.
The privatization of space for profit puts the United Nations’ Moon and Outer Space Treaties in jeopardy. The Pentagon’s ‘Space Force’ is issuing statements about the U.S. determination to control the pathway ‘on and off’ the planet.
Now is the time for us to gather internationally and call for protection of the space environment from greed, pollution and war. Join us by organizing a local public event in your community during Keep Space for Peace Week.
Events at military bases, space tech production facilities, launch sites, outside government buildings and more.
Please check out & share our many space videos.
Organize a local event – Be sure to let us know about any event you organize in your local community during space week.
“NASA and the nuclear industry view space as a new market for their toxic nuclear products. NASA is currently asking for corporate bids to build the nuclear rocket to Mars. Plans call for testing of the reactors just about our heads in Lower Earth Orbit (LEO).”
