Radiohead Star Fronts 'Star Wars' Demonstration
Thom Yorke supports the CND rally in Yorkshire
Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke was in Yorkshire this weekend for a CND protest rally against Tony Blair's support for the US 'Son of Star Wars' programme.

The demonstration - which a police spokesperson described as trouble-free, with no-arrests - took place outside the RAF Fylingdales Warning Base near Whitby. Fylingdales is the focus of Tony Blair's support for George Bush's 'Star Wars' missile defence system, which shoots ballistic missiles out of the sky before reaching their target. Fylingdales is the sole UK 'Star Wars' base announced so far.

"How dare Tony Blair sign us up to 'Star Wars' without even giving it a really serious thought," Yorke said to the crowd of around 350.

"It's sickening. It's important that people like us can get off our backsides and come to these events. We need to make it clear that we will not let America govern the world we live in. Let's make this a good, positive day."

The government says that the defence programme is an aid to global security, however CND claim that the system is offensive and can only add to problems worldwide.
