GDAMS supporter Peter G. Cohen has sent us this commentary on the necessity of reeling in the U.S. empire and bringing our war dollars home. Check it out!
We’ve long had available our action events map, which shows where our organizers are located all over the world and how you can get in touch with them. Now we’re introducing our MeetUp map, which enables visitors to start their own event or join other events near them. It’s an excellent tool for promoting events and hammering out concrete details. Use it and share it!
We’re also happy now to offer a Chinese translation of our invitation letter, courtesy of Dashu Han.
Check out this amazing video from our partner organization Religions for Peace. So far they’ve amassed an unprecedented 20 million signatures from all over the world against rampant military spending.
Folks, we’re now less than two months from the big day. We are thrilled to have been joined by groups and organizers from Finland, Norway, Australia, Nepal, Pakistan, New York, and others in recent weeks.
Be sure to check out some of our new resources. For groups in the U.S., we hope you’ll check out our U.S. Tax Day Materials for information on organizing events that tackle specifically how our tax dollars are tied up in the military.
For all organizers and aspiring participants, we hope you’ll check out our new Meetup page to hammer out the details of your local events. It’s a great way for participants and organizers to touch base. Send the link to your networks — with any luck it will take on a life of its own!
