    Menwith Hill 2012

Yorkshire CND have published a new research report covering the strategic role of Menwith Hill which is available to download.

Steve Schofield, the study's author, said: "It is no longer possible to think of Menwith Hill as simply carrying out traditional military, diplomatic and commercial electronic spying for the United States, but rather to recognise its role as an active provider of integrated intelligence to support new forms of warfare."

He added: "This paradigm shift towards permanent surveillance from space and real-time military interventions anywhere in the world through remotely-controlled weapons raises profound questions about the western way of war but questions that are, as yet, barely being addressed."
