It is a scandal that 1 in 4 children in the UK grow up in poverty. It is a disgrace that 20,000 disabled people will lose support for the basics in life when the Independent Living Fund closes. It is outrageous that thirteen times more people are relying on foodbanks to survive than did five years ago.
It is all the more scandalous when you realise that the UK’s military spending is among the highest in the world.
It’s time to shift priorities. Take action with people across the world to challenge military spending on the Global Day of Action – 14 April 2014.
