Veterans For Peace is taking the opportunity to educate folks with some terrifying facts on the military industrial complex.
Veterans For Peace knows that the real ghouls and goblins are continuing to fund these endless wars and the defense contractors who continue getting rich off these dangerous policies. We decided to release some real facts that show how terrifying and out of control the U.S. is when it comes to defense spending, nuclear weapons, treatment of our veterans, etc.
You can check them out here!
Funding endless war is an existential threat to human life and one of the leading causes of climate change, which is why it's urgent that we come together in Washington D.C. and make the connection between U.S. militarism and climate change. On Friday, November 8th, Fire Drill Fridays will focus on War and Military.
