Peace and Justice Group holds rally

The Walpole Peace and Justice Group held a tax day rally on Thursday, April 25, to call for a reduction in U.S. military spending and a redirection of those funds to human needs. A 40 foot budget banner was held showing where the Federal discretionary budget is spent today. The banner was comprised of colored cloth segments, each proportional in length to the budget category.

The U.S. spends more than 50 percent of the Federal discretionary budget on the military. The U.S. military spending exceeds the combined total of the next seven largest military spenders: China, Saudi Arabia, Russia, India, France, UK, and Japan.

The Walpole tax day rally was part of the Global Days of Action on Military Spending GDAMS campaign, held in over 100 cities around the world.

The Walpole Peace and Justice Group is a group of citizens committed to promoting peace and justice in the community and the larger world through education, study, witness, advocacy, and action. For more information, contact info@walpolepeace.org.
