from the Commission for Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation USG/UISG Secretariat

Global Day of Action on Military Spending (April 12, 2011): The Peace working group encourages religious to support this campaign against military spending. The world spent $1.53 trillion dollars on the military when $30 billion a year could eradicate world hunger according to the World Food Summit. You might like to consider: (i) present this campaign to members of your congregation; (ii) suggest this issue be incorporated into community prayer and/or Eucharist and (iii) network with other organizations involved.
