Location: Brunswick, Maine, United States

I'll be taking an 'unpaid leave of absence' from my job at the Global Network from December 15-March 15, 2020 in order to help my friend Lisa Savage on her campaign for the US Senate in Maine. She's running as a Maine Green Independent Party member and needs to gather 2,000 petition signatures of registered Greens during that period. I'll be back to GN after March 15.

SLASH THAT WAR BUDGET!



Secretary of War Leon Panetta warns us that cutting the Pentagon budget would create a "doomsday" scenario for the U.S. military. However, wait until you learn how they're really spending your money.

In addition to the video,  how about cutting that vast recruiting budget?  And all the toxic imperial military bases around the world.   (Remember that the Pentagon is the biggest polluter on the planet.)

Don't fall for the military industrial complex's job scare tactics.  Cut that damn Pentagon budget and create real jobs weatherizing homes, hiring teachers and medical workers, repairing our bridges and local water systems, build a national rail system and a solar society.

Help us demand conversion of the war machine to peacetime production.  Deal with climate change - end the wars for resource extraction.

It's your $$$ we are talking about here. 

Stand up and be counted.
