Building a Just and Sustainable World May 2008
The Summer 2008 issue of YES! shows how we could save billions by cutting back on military spending, closing some of our 800-plus foreign military bases, and abolishing nuclear weapons. We could recreate our relationships with Iran, China, Cuba, and elsewhere, and base our foreign policy on the world’s common need for a more secure and sustainable planet.
You can help make that happen. The “Superpower? Get Over It” issue of YES! shows how people are voting in their hometown for peace, supporting returning veterans, and linking up with people from distant parts of the world.
