Global Days of Action on Military Spending Protest

Milwaukee action during the International Peace Bureau’s Global Days of Action on Military Spending.
The sequester that has long tied U.S. spending for essential social services to the level of military spending has expired. We can now cut military spending without cutting spending for public health, housing, food assistance and green jobs. After a year-long pandemic, with all of the deaths and suffering it has caused, there is broad public and Congressional support for reducing military spending to revitalize the economy.
It’s time to end $1 trillion a year being spent on wars and the military, and for reductions in the Pentagon’s $2 trillion plan to upgrade the U.S. nuclear arsenal and its delivery systems, and not to spend $100 billion to replace U.S. first strike and vulnerable land-based ICBM’s.
We have a new and growing Congressional Defense Spending Reductions Caucus, committed to cutting at least 10% of the Pentagon’s budget. Join the Peace Action WI Campaign to Reduce Military Spending.
