Take Action: Keep COVID Stimulus $$ Away From the Pentagon
Congress is putting together additional and much needed stimulus packages in response to COVID-19. That’s the good news.
The bad news is that the Pentagon is trying to weasel billions of dollars out of these stimulus bills! All just to keep the mega-profits rolling for weapons dealers and the military-industrial complex.
As people here at home and around the world watch loved ones grow sick, or worse lose them altogether to COVID-19, the Pentagon wants to take the money we need for pandemic security to buy new nuclear weapons, fancy new weapon systems, and here’s the kicker – that d%$n border wall.
Pardon our language. We’re just that mad.
It’s imperative that we put our foot down and throw a wrench in their despicable efforts.
Going up against the lobbying armies of Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Northrup Grumman, and the likes, takes a concerted effort. We’re going to need hundreds of thousands of voices speaking out.
That’s why Peace Action has joined forces with over 60 other national organizations to go toe to toe with the arms dealers, and demand Congress not give the Pentagon a PENNY MORE in the next coronavirus relief package.
Now more than ever, it’s imperative that we remind Congress that they are accountable to us, the people, and not Trump, not the Pentagon, and certainly not to arms dealers. There is a real and immediate need out there for things that will actually make us safer and more secure. We need more N95 masks, not more F-35 jet fighters. Those are useless against the tremendous greatest threat to our security we find ourselves in. We need more masks, more ventilators, and more nurses. We need assistance for the sixty million people that have lost their jobs. We need aid for communities that were already struggling before the pandemic. And we need it all now.
Thank you for joining us in standing up for the people today.
After demanding your members of Congress take action, be sure to forward this important action to your family, friends, colleagues, and any social media you engage in. Thanks!
