Session 1: Saturday, June 2nd: 10:00 - 11:50am
Panel/Workshop Presentation Documents:
We will discuss the current state of US militarization, the problems this poses, the causes of it, and what we can all do about it. The US has become the “Worlds’ Policeman” and spends as much on its military as the next 8 countries combined. With more than 700 military bases around the world, in almost every country, and with a nuclear arsenal on hair-trigger alert ready to incinerate the world in minutes, accidently or intentionally, no wonder the policy is officially called “MAD”, Mutual Assured Destruction. The good news: as more and more people learn about these issues, they are demanding change and sane policies.
