From the Green Shadow Cabinet:
This week social and economic justice, peace, environmental and community groups are heading to Washington DC to tell Congress: We the People demand a budget that meets our critical needs – by cutting out-of-control, dangerous military spending.
Over one hundred organizations have signed onto a letter outlining a plan to meet dire human and environmental needs by cutting the dangerous, runaway military budget by 25-50%.
Thousands of individuals have signed on to a petition calling for the same thing.
On December 10 we’re delivering it to Congress! Join us and tell Congress this is the only way to end the ongoing financial and humanitarian crisis caused by this reckless and obsolete wartime budget.
Will they listen? We’re not holding our breath. But we are going to tell them anyway! And we’ll start building our power to compel a People’s Budget in the future.
So if you can, come along to Congress on Tuesday. Bring a picture or drawing of something you personally are sacrificing in order to pay for the policy endless war.
RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org for updates.
See you there!
Jill Stein, Cheri Honkala, Mark Dunlea, David Swanson
