Bruce Gagnon on Weapons in Space, Military Expansion, War, Climate Change and Corporate Domination

Host Per Fagereng speaks with Bruce Gagnon, Coordinator of the Global Network Against Weapons & Nuclear Power in Space. He was a co-founder of the Global Network when it was created in 1992.

Between 1983–1998 Bruce was the State Coordinator of the Florida Coalition for Peace & Justice and has worked on space issues for 29 years. In 1987 he organized the largest peace protest in Florida history when over 5,000 people marched on Cape Canaveral in opposition to the first flight test of the Trident II nuclear missile. He was the organizer of the Cancel Cassini Campaign (launched 72 pounds of plutonium into space in 1997).

In 2003 Bruce co-produced a popular documentary video entitled Arsenal of Hypocrisy that spelled out U.S. plans for space domination. Another of his videos, shot in 2009, was entitled Review of Obama's Foreign Policy.

He is also host of a public access TV show called This Issue that currently runs in 13 Maine communities.

Bruce will be speaking  in Portland this week on current U.S. space technology strategy, military expansion in the Asia-Pacific region, the effects of our war economy on climate change and ending the corporate domination of congress
