@ The Chong/Pearlman Residence, 34 Wadleigh Rd, Sanbornton, NH
Join us on Saturday, July 13, 2013 at 10 am for the NH Peace Action Annual Membership Meeting and Picnic. PLEASE NOTE NEW TIME AND VENUE!!!
Keynote address by Mike Prokosch: “What kind of peace movement do we need?”
Mike Prokosch comes to us from the New Priorities Network, a coalition of groups (including Peace Action) working together to change our national spending priorities.
In a 2012 piece for OtherWords, called Playing With Fire, Mike wrote about spending and the Pentagon budget:
“In fact, we’ll be safer if budget cuts force the Pentagon, Congress, and the White House to focus on programs that actually improve our well-being instead of trying to police every corner of the world. And we’ll be a lot more secure if Washington shifts the savings to us and helps us get out of this Great Recession.
President Ronald Reagan had some advice for confronting bureaucracies like this: “Starve the beast.” It’s time for those who call themselves Reagan’s heirs to take his advice and put the Pentagon on a diet.” In other words – it’s time to move the money.
Diane Downing of The Common Man Restaurants has graciously offered to provide meats for the BBQ and if you can please bring a desert if your last name starts with A-P, or a salad if it starts with Q-Z. Potluck lunch will be at 12:30.
