Our partners organised 127 events in 20 countries including various campaigns on social media, a kite-flying event, a street meditation, a night light action, a blockade of military establishments, writing a poem, a video clip and others. This year’s Day of Action came at a time of increasing tensions in several regions, and signs of political pressure to spend more from the public purse on the military and to sell yet more weapons. At the same time governments and the UN are urging greater financial commitments both to the Post-2015 Development Agenda, and to efforts to tackle the climate change crisis. The Day of Action was an opportunity to take stock of the facts and to explore what can be done at various levels.
