We are continuing to work on a new show or shows about the Federal budget, to air before the election. While we work on it, it seems like a good idea to re-air this related interview, which originally broadcast on 4/18.
Longtime peace and justice activist Mike Prokosch is one of the main organizers behind the 25% Coalition, which seeks to build support for cutting the U.S. military budget by 25%, and investing those funds instead in building and sustaining our communities. With the U.S., including our states and cities, still facing devastating economic and environmental crises, this 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. With a 25% reduction in military spending in the Federal budget, we could instead fund urgent needs, including jobs, housing, health care, education, clean energy and infrastructure repairs, and prevent the layoffs of State and local public workers in the Commonwealth.
