Niscemi, August 9 - An estimated 1,000 people
marched Friday in protest of a new United States satellite
communications base under construction in Sicily.
Construction of the Mobile User Objective System (MUOS)
site by the US military has stirred controversy in Sicily, and
in past instances demonstrators have clashed with police.
While opponents say MUOS will threaten world peace, the
environment, and the health of locals, Italy's defence ministry
says the system is "essential for NATO operations in the
Mediterranean and therefore, for national security".
Some nine protestors on Friday climbed antennas inside the
base.
