UJP Activist: Fund Our Communities, Not War


Congressman Barney Frank and State Representative Ruth Balser

Sunday, March 11, 2012, 2:30 pm

St. Paul's Episcopal Church, 1135 Walnut St, Newton Highlands

Newton Highlands T stop (Green Line "D" train) 

This free public forum on cutting military spending and better funding our
communities will feature presentations by Congressman Barney Frank (D, Newton),
State Representative Ruth Balser (D, Newton), and New Priorities Network
coordinator Mike Prokosch.

The annual US military expenditures equal those of all other nations combined.
Defense makes up over half of the annual US discretionary budget and has
increased by 50% since 2001. In contrast, US expenditures for education, health,
police and fire, public assistance, and infrastructure have been repeatedly cut
over the past years and face even more cuts in the future. Does this truly
represent what most Americans want as their national priorities? Come hear and
participate in a vital discussion of these issues.

Near public parking. For more information email ntndlg at comcast.net.

Sponsored by Newton Dialogues on Peace and War.  Co-sponsored by Massachusetts
Peace Action, Watertown Citizens for Peace, Justice, and the Environment,
Women's International League for Peace and Freedom - Boston chapter, and Newton
Highlands Neighborhood Area Council
