In Australia, six peace activists have been convicted of trespassing at a top-secret U.S. military base hidden in the Australian Outback in a protest last year. The peace activists now face up to seven years in prison. The trials have put a spotlight on the secretive military base, known as the Joint Defense Facility Pine Gap, from which the U.S. gathers satellite information used to launch U.S. airstrikes around the world.
