Challenging Militarism in a Pandemic
Online

The Covid pandemic is a reminder that guns and bombs cannot make us safe. It is more vital than ever to challenge militarist assumptions that equate security with preparations for war.
This will be followed the next month by another online event: Challenging Militarism in Your Community, on Monday 12th April. This will be a chance to share ideas and make plans for campaigning in your own area.
