An exciting popular education workshop from U.S. Labor Against the War & United for a Fair Economy:

WAR AND THE ECONOMY:
TOO MANY GUNS, NOT ENOUGH BUTTER

a nuts and bolts workshop for trade unionists and allies
================================

Open to all, but space is limited; please RSVP to info@southbaylaborforpeace.org

================================
Does war stimulate the economy?

Is military spending taking money away from social programs?

Does militarism increase inequality?

Can we cut military spending?


This participatory interactive workshop explores the impact of war and militarism on the US economy, examines militarism from race, gender, and class perspectives, and demonstrates how war and militarism drain resources from basic family and community needs. The War & the Economy workshop features a variety of learning activities that include live illustrations of economic trends, mini-presentations, and small group discussions.

What should our national priorities be?
What values should guide our foreign and military policies?

1 Cluster Bomb or 2 Kids in Head Start?
1 Stealth Bomber or 28,000 Affordable Housing Units?
1 Day of War in Iraq or Health Care for 180,000 People?
