VIDEO: Nobel Laureate Óscar Arias: GDAMS and the Power of Demilitarization

The former Costa Rican President and 1987 Nobel Peace Prize winner has done us the honor of putting together this video in honor of the Global Day of Action on Military Spending!

Without an army, Costa Rica has been able to invest public resources in the public interest – education, healthcare, development, humanity. Arias shares his thoughts on what might happen if the whole world shared the Costa Rican vision of a peaceful and just world – one with no armies, where human security is not measured in missiles.
