The Global Campaign on Military Spending (GCOMS) is an international campaign promoted by the International Peace Bureau. It was created from the Global Days of Action (GDAMS), which started on 2011. The main aim of GCOMS is to reduce the global military spending thanks to the cooperative works made by the organizations of civil society. GCOMS is run by a steering group of activists from all over world, and is coordinated by the Center of Peace Studies – J.M.Delàs, in Barcelona as a decentralized office of IPB. It works through its members to change government policy and practice on military spending. Read more in the GCOMS Brochure.
We presently have partners and campaigners in many countries, and we would be really pleased to have you on board. We organize two main campaigns (GDAMS and Cut Milex) with plenty of actions and activities. You can download our last 2017 GDAMS report from our webapges, for your information. We produce a variety of material that you can directly download from our webpages for your campaigns.
