Join us during our GCOMS Action Days!
This year, the IPB Global Day(s) of Action on Military Spending (GDAMS) will include the period from April 14 to May 3rd, 2018. This way, GDAMS includes the U.S. Tax Day on April 17, when Americans pay their taxes and debate their use, together with the previous week-end, when most of the U.S. actions will take place. GDAMS 2018 will also include May 2nd, the date of the release of the annual world military expenditure figures by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI). Moreover, May 3rd is the Constitution Day in Japan. This way, GDAMS can help taking actions on Japan prime Minister Abe’s attempts to amend war-renouncing Article 9 of the Japan Constitution (this being the main hook in Peace Boat 2018 GCOMS efforts). And May 3rd will also be the last day of the 2018 Preparatory Committee for the 2020 Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty Review Conference.
Between April 14 and May 3rd, 2018, GDAMS will include as many actions as possible worldwide to ask for a redirection of military spending. GDAMS 2018 slogan will be:
Reducing 10% of military assets will help saving our planet. Take action!
We must move a significant part of the military budgets to human needs! For more information and how to get your event on the GDAMS world map visit the GCOMS website: http://demilitarize.org
