This year’s GDAMS is already here! And we have lots of materials for you to spread our demands.
New materials and how to use them in the #YouAllOweUs campaign
You will find below the new Infographics, made for a virtual campaign that will begin on Monday Aoril 16th, 2018. They include:
a) 2 general images where Trump remind global political leaders commited with increasing military spending that they all owe money and cooperation to the US for his role of world’s guard (starting from the idea of the 2%GDP he requires from NATO members and how he addressed Germany in these terms). We can see in them how people is demanding politicians to take action instead on fulfiling the SDG’s.
b) Images of global political leaders committed with the increase in military expenditure. We have chosen them on the basis of their representativity and their public advocacy of the increase, but please, if you really miss a leader or a territory, send us a representative sentence where he/she claims for the need to rise MilEx). We did choose only 2 European leaders, despite that a lot of more countries are doing the same. We are so conscious that, as for instance, Africa is only represented trough Al-Sisi. As I said, send us all the information, including concrete sentences, and we will try to add new ones if necessary.
[IMPORTANT] How we will use this material: As mentioned, we all (partners but also organizations that can collaborate with us) will launch on May16th the images on our social networks under the hashtags #YouAllOweUs… (Health and wellbeing, better education, gender equalitu, etc) and #MovetheMoney #GDAMS2018
The idea is to combine the first image (the one with all the leaders) with one of the singles, adding those SDG’s or petitions we think military spending must be moved to, reminding political leaders what their priorities should be, as in the following example:
