Global Campaign on Military Spending 20 – 23 April

GDAMS2-338x254Pax Christi  supported actions and events to mark the GCOMS 2017.  

Examples of activities that took place can be found here 

A week ago the Ministry of Defence proudly announced that the UK is “stepping up across the globe: the 5th largest defence budget in the world and largest in Europe, rising by around £1Bn a year”

A global coalition of organisations and grass-roots activists  took part  in a Global Campaign on Military Spending – bringing questions about what makes the world a safer place to the attention of governments and communities around the world. They suggest the money would be better spent on healthcare, international cooperation & development, tackling climate change and investment education.  Take part in the On-line ballot here
