Dear peacefriends we are now 1069 people that have sign the campaign – Thank you!
We all know how the situation is for many people in the world. People are in need for food, shelter, healthcare and protection.
Today as every dag 18 000 children die because of hunger or deceases that we easily can do something about. The situation have been improved. UN writes “Globally, the number of deaths of children under 5 years of age fell from 12.6 million in 1990 to 6.6 million in 2012.”
International Peace Bureau www.ipb.org is working for a world without war in many ways. As the UN now is going to change the Millennium goals for the coming years IPB suggest “Reduce the world´s military budgets by 10% per year worldwide for the period 2015-2030 and use the resources to curb climate change and build peace and social justice."
Pictures of Gaza shows us how horrible violence is. We must take our responsibility to do what we can. Discuss with your friends and teach them the amount we spend on the military in the world. Discuss what options we have. It is possible to change the world!
