Opposition to Star Wars Program Mounts:
Space Preservation Act of 2002 Gains Support
on Capitol Hill and Grassroots
Sandpoint, ID Opposition is mounting on Capitol Hill, and in
the grassroots, to the costly and risky Strategic Defense
Initiative (SDI), better known as Star Warsa cornerstone of
the Bush administration's military mindset. Representative
Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) has advanced legislation that targets
the SDI, alternatively called National Missile Defense (NMD), in
response to public health and safety concerns.
The new bill, the Space Preservation Act of 2002 (H.R. 3616),
proposes to ban space-based weapons and terminate research,
development, testing, manufacturing, production and deployment
of all space-based weapons of the United States. The
term space-based weapon is defined as a device capable of
damaging or destroying an object or person (whether in outer
space, in the atmosphere, or on earth) . . . including firing
projectiles, detonating explosives, or directing energy sources
at objects or people.
Thus far, according to Dr. Carol Rosin, President of the
Institute for Cooperation in Space, most of the world's nations
are on record as wanting to ban space-based weapons. On
November 29, 2001, the U.N. General Assembly approved by 156-0
votes the basis for a treaty establishing a permanent ban on
space-based weapons (Resolution 56/535).
Grass roots activism is spreading rapidly in support of this
bill according to Dr. Rosin, who Military Space reported
was the original political architect of the move to stop the
SDI and ASATs (anti-satellite weapons). Two decades of
experience as a government watchdog and policy analyst in this
field has taught her this bill may be critical for assuring the
public's health and safety.
The weaponization of space will be prevented with passing H.R.
3616, and the compatible Space Preservation Treaty. We can then
safely establish a world cooperative space R&D program for
health, education, security and economic growth based on space
exploration, space habitation, space hospitals, space industry
and commerce, Dr. Rosin said. Even space schools, labs,
farms, hotels and resorts in space are being planned for the
Many scientists and space industrialists advocate passage of
H.R. 3616, for example, to facilitate research and development.
For example, many health scientists believe new healing
techniques might be developed in zero gravity. Others advocate
space developments in pursuit of safer and cleaner technologies
used to solve urgent human problems including worsening
The pending legislation, H.R. 3616, calls for a ban on all
space-based weapons. The broadly defined term weapons in
the definition section of an earlier version of the legislation
as introduced into the Congressional Record included
(i) electronic, psychotronic, or information weapons;
(ii) chemtrails; (iii) high altitude ultra low frequency weapons
systems; (iv) plasma, electromagnetic, sonic, or ultrasonic
weapons; (v) laser weapons systems; (vi) strategic, theater,
tactical, or extraterrestrial weapons; and (vii) chemical,
biological, environmental, climate, or tectonic weapons. H.R.
3616 maintains the clear intent to ban all space-based weapons,
no matter what they may be.
Reflecting growing grassroots concern, one small press has
donated $30,000 worth of books entitled "Death in the Air:
Globalism, Terrorism and Toxic Warfare" (ISBN: 0923550-30-5) to
members of Congress and American libraries in support of the
bill. The book, written by Harvard-trained health science
investigator, Dr. Leonard G. Horowitz, discusses the risks posed
by the SDI and failure to pass H.R. 3616. (See

is mailing more than 1,000 free copies of the
525-page hardcover to congressional members and acquisition
librarians who wish to claim their free books.
Dr. Horowitz believes that H.R. 3616, holds the power to free
or enslave humanity depending on how the bill is voted
upon. We need to safeguard against the use of all space-based
weapons, Dr. Horowitz said. This legislation, and the
compatible global Space Preservation Treaty,' will ban
all space-based weapons' and this is a vitally important step
needed to protect everyone.
At a time when Bush administration officials are secretly
planning to expand nuclear and space-based weapons strategies
against nations on their hit list, activists say the importance
of this bill is unsurpassed by anything ever considered.
