From Congress's outrageous vote to increase the Pentagon budget, to the passing of @RepRoKhanna's NDAA amendment (finally, some good news!), to the debate over whether to fund Israel's Iron Dome– it's been one hectic week! Check out everything you missed ⬇️codepink.org/september_20_20…

Imagine what the US could achieve if Congress fought as hard for housing, healthcare, education, & climate action as it did to fund Israel's Iron Dome. #CutThePentagon

A Yemeni child dies from starvation every ten minutes due to the humanitarian crisis caused by Saudi-led war. In voting to continue support for the Saudi-led war on Yemen, these 11 Dems opted to disregard millions of lives in favor of war & profit. #ExterminationEleven

Shame on every single one of you. What is your problem? There are children starving to death while you stomachs and campaign chests are full. This is disgraceful!

In case you were wondering what Israel does with the $3.8 billion– make that $4.8 billion after yesterday's NDAA vote– it receives from the US... #FreePalestine
Israeli soldiers brutally arresting a child today in Hebron. The US gives Israel $3.8 billion in military funding a year.

Yesterday, members of the House of Representatives voted on the National Defense Authorization Act, must-pass legislation that authorizes Pentagon funding for fiscal year 2022. How did your representative vote on legislation to #CutThePentagon by 10%? codepink.org/vote_tally_ndaa…

We are disappointed that all attempts to #CutThePentagon failed We are not surprised, however, given that @Sludge & @security_reform found that Democrats who voted against cutting the Pentagon budget took 368% MORE money from military contractors 😡

The corporate capture of our politicians by military contractors is the prime culprit for increasing the Pentagon budget every year. 📣Take Action: Tell your representative to STOP taking campaign contributions from weapons manufacturers! codepink.org/divestcongress

🗣️ A little louder for the neoliberal imperialists in the back! #CutThePentagon and invest in teaching, housing, nurturing, and healing the people!
Peru's new leftist President Pedro Castillo used his first ever speech at the United Nations to call for a "social transformation" that guarantees not just civil and political rights, but also economic and social rights to healthcare, education, housing, and dignified work

US lobbying firm Squire Patton Boggs has *finally* dropped its contract with the murderous Saudi government responsible for the brutal murder of @washingtonpost writer Jamal Khashoggi in Oct 2018. The decision, while welcomed, took three years too long. motherjones.com/politics/202…

Claudia de la Cruz and @manolo_realengo, our friends from the @PeoplesForumNYC, have joined the call to #CutThePentagon and advocate for investing in healthcare and education instead! What's a cause close to your heart that you want the US to invest in rather than war? 💗
