Global Days of Action against Military Spending. Redefining Security.

It seems particularly appropriate at this time to rethink what real security means. How would you spend the “defence” budget? For the cost of one Trident nuclear missile you could buy 17 million masks to help prevent the spread of Covid-19.

Women in Black have repeatedly called for a redefinition of security, which is not based on weapons and military might. Our ideas of security – based on the thinking of peoples from the global south and women worldwide – would ensure, for example, that everyone has access to health, to education, to water, to adequate housing and to live free of violence.
