DISARM UPDATE
 
 
This protest has been cancelled because the missile launch was cancelled 

FLASH!  ICBM  (delivery system for nuclear weapons) launch set for Vandenberg AFB in the early hours of  November 18 (cost $21 million). Why, when President Obama has told the world the USA will take the lead in negotiating global abolition of nuclear weapons, is the military still upgrading and testing our Minute Man III nuclear weapons delivery vehicles? How is this going to persuade China, North Korea, Pakistan, India and Israel to join in ensuring a nuclear free future?

 

This protest has been cancelled because the missile launch was cancelled peace protest will start at the front gate Nov 17 at 11:55 pm  (midnight) six miles north of Lompoc on Highway One in Santa Barbara County CA
