Program Title: Latin Waves interviews Space 4 Peace Coordinator Bruce Gagnon
Description: Bruce Gagnon is the Coordinator of the Global Network Against Weapons & Nuclear Power in Space. He was a co-founder of the Global Network when it was created in 1992.
Between 1983–1998 Bruce was the State Coordinator of the Florida Coalition for Peace & Justice and has worked on space issues for 30 years. In 1987 he organized the largest peace protest in Florida history when over 5,000 people marched on Cape Canaveral in opposition to the first flight test of the Trident II nuclear missile.
He was the organizer of the Cancel Cassini Campaign (launched 72 pounds of plutonium into space in 1997) that drew enormous support and media coverage around the world and was featured on the TV program 60 Minutes.
Host Stuart Richardson speaks to Bruce about the newly proposed "Space Force", the lunacy of creating a massive new military expenditure and how the government is planning on funding it. And what we can do as citizens to stop these projects by envisioning the money being spent on more human centered programs like climate change which is a win, win ,win as it creates jobs, mitigates climate change and moves us towards peace.
