The news that the American base at Menwith Hill and other US bases in the UK are to be upgraded is deeply concerning. I say this because many of us, since the base first arrived in the early 1950s, have worked to expose and reveal the truth as to what is actually going on at Menwith Hill.

The base, occupied and controlled by the American authorities is shrounded in secrecy, public scrutiny and any semblance of accountability. The outward appearance of ‘RAF’ Menwith Hill gives the impression that this base is accountable to the UK government. This is far from the truth and the public are being duped.
