Join the Los Angeles Catholic Worker, and guest speaker Kathy Kelly to protest the Star Wars (missile defense system) at the main gate of Vandenberg Air Force Base at 1pm. Vandenberg is a test site for the National Missile Defense program and launch site for missile guidance and surveillance systems.
Nobel Peace Prize Nominee and co-founder of Voices in the Wilderness, Kathy Kelly will be the special guest speaker. She has made many trips taking humanitarian aid to the people of Iraq and was in Baghdad during the "shock and awe" bombardment of that city by the U.S. Air Force.
Together with Fort Greely, Alaska, Vandenberg is the site for the deployment of missile defense (Star Wars) interceptors. Vandenberg is also the location for the launch and coordination of polar satellites used for directing the bombing of Afghanistan and Iraq.
