UJP Activist: Afghanistan, Military Cuts, Nuclear Disarmament at Mass Peace
Action Meeting








AFGHANISTAN, MILITARY CUTS, NUCLEAR DISARMAMENT AT MASS PEACE ACTION MEETING
============================================================

		

		Ann Jones

Join members and friends of Massachusetts Action this Saturday afternoon as we
review the progress in 2010 and chart the path for our work in 2011.

Ann Jones, the author who documented Afghan women's lives in the searing Kabul
in Winter, will speak on ending the Afghanistan war and Afghan women's human
rights.

		

		Michael Prokosch

We will work together intensively on the campaign to fund our Massachusetts
communities by cutting the military budget. Massachusetts expects a $1.8 billion
budget shortfall this year and there will be a lot of controversy on what to do
about it. For this part of the afternoon we will divide into small groups by
cities/towns or regions of the state.   The national coordinator of the New
Priorities Network [1], Michael Prokosch, will introduce our discussion.

Now that the START Treaty has been passed, we'll discuss Peace Action's new
three-part strategy in our drive for nuclear disarmament. It may surprise you,
and we'll ask for your feedback!

All are welcome and the conference is free, but please register for the
conference [2] so we know how many to expect, and from what communities. To
