Global Days of Action on Military Spending, 2022

The campaign launched with the release of the this year’s SIPRI figures on world wide military spending. (The SIPRI Yearbook is known worldwide as an authoritative and independent source for politicians, diplomats, journalists, scholars, students and citizens on armaments, disarmament and international security.)
