Help Curb StratCom

The United Nations Association of the United States of America (UNA-USA) is holding its 2009 National Convention in Washington, D.C. June 12-14.

Seven UNA-USA Chapters and/or Divisions are co-sponsoring a resolution that addresses StratCom's mission of launching first-strike nuclear and conventional attacks, the command's ongoing pursuit of new generations of nuclear weapons, and its central role in militarily dominating outer space.

This table demonstrates results of a recent study, which found that public dollars invested in health care, education, mass transit, or construction for home weatherization and infrastructure create more jobs than investing an equivalent amount in the military
(or in tax breaks)

In fact, twice as many jobs are created by equivalent spending on education and mass transit as on the military.  The research was conducted by the Political Economy Research Institute (PERI) at the University of  Massachusetts Amherst. 

For more information, contact Miriam Pemberton at IPS (Miriam@ips-dc.org), or Marie Rietmann of WAND (Rietmann@wand.org).
