Keep Space for Peace - Letter to UK government and EU Parliament

Dear Friends,

I am writing to ask if you and/or your organisation can sign the letter below (*). It is opposing the plans by the US to develop National Missile Defence (NMD) and calling for outer space to be kept free of weapons and prevent a new arms race starting.

The letter will be presented to the UK government and EU Parliament in early March. The UK government hosts two US Bases that will be involved in the NMD programme - Menwith Hill and Fylingdales. The EU parliament should be taking these issues seriously to protect citizens against the threat of a new arms race which may result from the development of NMD.

For more information on this issue please see our website: < http://www.gn.apc.org/cndyorks/yspace > which has articles and links to other sites.

President Clinton is due to make a decision on NMD in June 2000 and we hope that the next 6 months will see an upsurge of protest by those who oppose it and fear the collapse of existing nuclear disarmament treaties such as the 1972 Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty which the development of NMD would mean.

Please sign the letter if you can. Many thanks.

Your in peace Rachel Julian, Yorkshire Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament e-mail: < >
