Cape Ann “Tax Day” Event
April 17, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Join North Shore Coalition for Peace & Justice and Veterans for Peace to protest our distorted tax & budget priorities.
At least 60% of annual US “Discretionary Spending” goes directly to the Pentagon to finance wars and military spending. When this is added to other military-related spending – for nuclear weapons (Dept. of Energy), CIA and other intelligence agencies, plus indirect spending for veterans’ services and debt payments from past wars – the total is well over a trillion dollars a year. The Pentagon consumes a vast amount of fossil fuels each year. NSCPJ & Veterans for Peace will gather to highlight the costs and tradeoffs of this disastrous policy. Please join us! Bring your friends!
We cannot solve the problems of affordable housing, healthcare, education, infrastructure, good jobs, arts and the environment while we waste trillions of dollars on weapons and wars. In our view, there can be no sustainable progressive future for our country without tackling the issues of war and militarism. Contact: 978-283-6049
