A webinar on the increasing US military budget and campaigns to reverse this.
‘The military budget is colossal and growing. There is funding for modernizing the nuclear arsenal, new high tech weapons, buying more aircraft carriers, advancing cyber and space warfare and long term strategic planning such as a possible attack on China. Meanwhile, social programs are cut hurting the working class and repression of people of color is increased, including militarization of the police and attacks on Muslims and immigrants.’
Presentations will be followed by discussion.
