STOP STAR WARS
NEW PAMPHLET FROM SCOTTISH CND:
"STAR WARS: Space - the next target for US invasion"
US plans to achieve "full spectrum dominance" will sound familiar to many people involved in the campaign to stop the war on Iraq. A new CND publication reveals how that strategy was first revealed in official documents relating to US weaponsiation of space.
In a well-researched and factual pamphlet Scottish CND has produced an up-to-date analysis of US plans to put weapons in space, better known as 'Star Wars'. With a forward by Bruce Kent and contributions from Tony Benn and Neil Mackay (award winning journalist from the Glasgow Herald) among others, the 60 page pamphlet explores not just the technical side of the US plans but also puts them into the wider context of US long-term strategic objectives and the UK-US 'Special Relationship'.
Also with articles by Professor Dave Webb (leading UK expert on the Star Wars programme); Professor John Foster (former professor of politics at Paisley University); Richard Leonard (former chair Scottish Labour Party and political officer of the GMB) and Dr. Alan Mackinnon (chair of Scottish CND) 'Star Wars: Space - the next target for US invasion' also looks at recent Star Wars developments in the UK and across the world and at how the Star Wars programme has impacted upon the Scottish economy.

Some recent comments
about the pamphlet:
"Accessible and informative, this excellent pamphlet from Scottish CND is an indispensible tool in the struggle against Star Wars - one of the greatest dangers to world peace today." Kate Hudson, Chair British CND, April 2004
Space - the next target for US invasion' is scarier than a horror novel
and more outlandish than Science Fiction - a plan for the future written
by right-wing American fanatics as monomaniacally demented as any Bond
