The latest PEC newsletter is out! We discuss the current state of gun violence prevention laws, military spending, upcoming local events, and the too-dang high rent!
The PEC is alarmed by the US’s distribution of cluster bombs to Ukraine. This weapon is banned in over 100 countries due to its indiscriminate impact, which could result in disastrous consequences. It is our strong belief that peaceful conflict resolution should be prioritized, and we encourage a global prohibition on cluster bombs.
More than half of the taxpayer dollars that Congress appropriates every year now goes into what passes for “defense” in this country.
