The role of the U.S in the new world corporate order is going to be to export security. that means endless wars and weapons in space. How will we ever end America's addiction to war and violence as long as our communities are dependent on military spending for jobs? Bruce Gagnon From Vandenberg, California to Kwajalein Atoll, from Kauai to Jeju Island, from Okinawa to the UK, the U.S. global network of military bases and space-based weapons systems seeks to attain 'full spectrum dominance' over the planet. But grassroots movements are resisting through dynamic local-global networks of solidarity. We are happy to host leaders of this growing international movement and we look forward to sharing their good work with the public.
