About 20 people from AFSC, NH Peace Action, NH Citizens Alliance for Action, and Every Child Matters held signs in front of BAE Systems in Merrimack NH on July 31 to call for cuts in military spending and increased support for programs that meet community needs for education, health care, and housing. The picket was timed to coincide with a "town hall meeting" organized by 3 US Senators to boost support for high levels of military spending.
This is an AFSC action guide for these events, focused on US federal budget priorities. This year, the Global Day of Action on Military Spending (GDAMS) coincides with tax day in the US, what better opportunity to tell Congress and your community that you want your tax dollars going to job creation and social programs, not war and tax cuts for the rich.
Tax Day 2012 is also the Global Day of Action on Military Spending (GDAMS), April 17, 2012. AFSC will be joining partners in 35 countries around the world and cities all over the US to call for cuts to the military buget and for funding for vital human needs and job creation.
