We are gearing up for the first-ever international action day on military spending on April 12, 2011. People in more than 35 countries and in hundreds of cities (see map) have already signed up to organize actions. We’re outraged that the world is spending more than $1.5 trillion every year on the military, with the United States accounting for nearly half of that amount.
