On October 7th, in tandem with the Tax Gizmo at Bryant Park, other Grannies were working to support the Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space (GN). The U.S. government has spent $75 Billion per year since 2001 to militarize outer space. GN leads the campaign against this and works to inform the public about Pentagon plans for weapons and nuclear powered spacecraft to secure U.S. control of outer space.
The Grannies and other GN supporters distributed over 300 flyers with information to KEEP SPACE FOR PEACE and STOP DRONE ATTACKS. From the Hancock Air National Guard Base near Syracuse, New York, Reaper drones fly missions over Afghanistan and Pakistan, killing innocent civilians in their search for militants.
