This year’s Global Day of Action on Military Spending (GDAMS) will be held on 15 April 2013. GDAMS brings groups together to create a global movement to pressure governments to reallocate their defence budgets.
The latest SIPRI report estimated the global military spending in 2011 at $1,738 billion. If reallocated, this amount could address essential human needs and current crises.
More information can be found on the GDAMS website: http://demilitarize.org/
Member Organisations of Pax Christi International are invited to join this campaign. Fr. Paul Lansu is a member of the GDAMS Steering Committee.
