We, the undersigned, urge you to stop all plans to build, test and deploy the Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) system, and the space-based laser program -- the real Star Wars.

We are deeply concerned that the U.S. Space Command, in their goal to "control and dominate" space, is creating a costly and deadly new arms race in space. Once begun it will be virtually impossible to stop.

The United Nations Outer Space Treaty states that no nation should be allowed to put weapons into space and that space must be preserved for the benefit of all humankind.

We pledge to work to stop the bad seed of war, greed, and environmental contamination from being moved into the heavens.
