May 15, 2015 Hilo Peace Vigil leaflet on Arms Spending


pope on arms

Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children…

Now, there could be another road before us—the road of disarmament. What does this mean? It means for everybody in the world: bread, butter, clothes, homes, hospitals, schools—all the good and necessary things for decent living. …”

former U.S. President and General Dwight David Eisenhower

Instead, there is a call to update the U.S. triad of nuclear-armed bomber aircraft, submarines and ground-based missiles costing $1 trillion over the next 30 years.
