Global Day of Action on Military Spending

12. April 2011

In 2009, global military spending surged to an all‐time high of US $1.53 trillion. Given the numerous crises facing the planet - economic, environmental, health, diplomatic ‐ we must create a global movement to shift this money to human needs. Thousands of organizations and millions of individuals support this point of view. Because of the global economic crisis, governments are even beginning to talk about cutting military spending. But they won’t make these cuts unless we pressure them to do so. We need to begin a serious mobilizing effort on a to feed people not the military‐industrial complex.
The Global Day of Action on Military Spending is initiated by the International Peace Bureau (IPB) and The Institute for Policy Studies (IPS). INES supports the initiative.
