86] – On October 8, 2022 from 10 to 11 AM, the Baltimore Nonviolence Center will protest at the National Security Agency at Fort Meade Maryland.  This protest is part of the Keep Space for Peace Week organized by the Global Network against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space.  It is an international network of organizations and individuals who are concerned about the militarization and exploitation of space. For example, when the US Space Force was established in 2019 President Trump said that it marked “a big moment.” The National Security Agency will play an important role in the militarization of space.

On October 3, 2022, an activist who has protested at the NSA over the years lost a battle with cancer. Eddie Smith was always faithful in pursuing peace with justice.  He will be missed by many of us who knew as a Quaker, an activist and a birder.  As such we plan to have a moment of silence to honor him while protesting at the NSA.  Should anyone want to join us, contact Max at 410-323-1607 or at mobuszewski2001 at Comcast dot net.
