Duluth calls for bringing war dollars home!

On December 17th, Duluth become the third community in Minnesota - after St Paul and Minneapolis - to pass a resolution calling for the redirection of military funds to meet human needs.

"We don't need to be working in the framework of austerity. Last year Congress devoted 59 cents out of every dollar appropriated to war," Minnesota Arms Spending Alternatives Project leader Jack Nelson-Pallmeyer told KQDS-DT.

In Wisconsin, Milwaukee and the AFT labor union have passed Bring Our War $$ Home (BOW$H) resolutions so far.  The Dane County Board is expected to vote on a BOW$H resolution in January.
