Petition to cut military spending not education!

Campaign Against Arms Trade (CAAT) | 06.01.2011 15:53 | Anti-militarism | Education | Terror War | Birmingham | Cambridge

Want to take a stand in protecting education and condemning wasteful military spending? SIGN THE PETITION HERE!

We, the undersigned, are concerned citizens who urge our leaders to act now to stop cutting funding to higher education leading to increased fees and instead cut the immense amount of taxpayers' money given to the military and in subsidies to profit arms companies.

We feel that spending £97 billion replacing Trident nuclear weapons, over £5 billion on aircraft carriers we don't need and subsidising arms exports to the tune of hundreds of million of pounds every year is WASTEFUL! It's calculated that every person in the UK gave arms company BAE Systems £64 last year. The government's priority should be young people and not arms companies' profits. Cut military spending not education!
