Global Campaign on Military Spending 2017 @ National
Apr 20 @ 12:00 am – Apr 23 @ 11:45 pm

 GDAMS card17GCOMS 2017 will run from 20 April  to 23 April – we hope this may give an opportunity to spread actions and events into the week-end.

A great opportunity to raise the issue of military spending – asking the question, “does it make us safer”.  Help others to think about this with a stall in your town centre or church.  Highlight the opportunities that are lost when governments spend money on the military rather than on health, education, development, climate change and more…

Ideas on how to run stalls here
