Our Tax Day, Not Theirs!
April 15 is both the Global Day of Action on Military Spending (GDAMS) and Tax Day in the US.  Help us send Congress a message about wasteful Pentagon spending on April 15 by joining this Thunderclap!

The US Congress and the President have been locked in cycles of brinkmanship over the federal budget priorities  and deficits that have brought the vast and wasteful Pentagon budget into public scrutiny.  The general public overwhelmingly supports cuts to military spending when shown the facts and the trade offs between human services and the Pentagon.

There is a broad and growing movement of peace, community and economic justice groups pushing for new federal budget priorities.  This makes GDAMS and Tax Day in the US a particularly auspicious occasion this year.

We will stand with the rest of the world to bear witness to the fact that military spending, especially the impact of US military spending stands as the major obstacle to addressing the problems all of our peoples face globally.  And we will send a message to Congress that military spending is a major obstacle to addressing all of the problems that our communities face locally.

GDAMS US Endorsing Organizations:  American Friends Service Committee, Fellowship of Reconciliation, Peace Action, Progressive Democrats of America, School of the Americas Watch, USAction, US Labor Against the War, Veterans for Peace, War Resisters League, Women's International League for Peace and Freedom
