Let's get disarmament on the agenda!
The COVID-19 pandemic has devastated lives and livelihoods around the world, highlighted and exacerbated systemic social, economic and political inequities, and exposed the flaws in government spending and other priorities, including the folly of maintaining armed forces in a constant state of combat readiness when there are so many other more pressing needs.
The critical need for cooperation at every level - local, national, regional and global - to find solutions to the issues that affect us all is perhaps clearer than ever before, as is the need to promote alternative and better ways forward from what we have now.
Humanitarian disarmament - which prioritises care for peoples and the planet, the prevention of harm, and global cooperation for the common good - provides a pathway for a better future, and we need your help to get disarmament on the agenda for this year's election so that it becomes a higher priority for the next government and those that follow.
Whether you are concerned about the failing health system, lack of affordable housing, levels of poverty and social inequities, environmental degradation, declining biodiversity, or inadequate attention to climate justice, disarmament has something positive to offer.
If you value the welfare of peoples and the planet above endless harmful preparations for war, please use and share the resources and links on this page - thank you.
