Longtime peace and justice activist Mike Prokosch is one of the main
organizers behind the 25% Coalition, which seeks to build support for

states and cities forced into layoffs and cutbacks, now is the moment to
demand a shift in our country's priorities. Military spending -- now more
than $700 billion per year -- is bankrupting our country and draining the
life blood of our communities.  Massachusetts Congressman Barney Frank, in

Mike has also been helping organize the Free School University's upcoming
Teach-in on Peace and Economic Justice at the April 23rd Occupy Boston
Community Gathering (6:00 to 8:30 pm at St. Paul's Cathedral, 138 Tremont
St, Boston - across from the Park St T Stop - Red or Green Lines)
