Join members and friends of Massachusetts Action this Saturday afternoon as we review the progress in 2010 and chart the path for our work in 2011.
Ann Jones, the author who documented Afghan women's lives in the searing Kabul in Winter, will speak on ending the Afghanistan war and Afghan women's human rights.
We will work together intensively on the campaign to fund our Massachusetts communities by cutting the military budget. Massachusetts expects a $1.8 billion budget shortfall this year and there will be a lot of controversy on what to do about it. For this part of the afternoon we will divide into small groups by cities/towns or regions of the state. The national coordinator of the New Priorities Network, Michael Prokosch, will introduce our discussion.
Now that the START Treaty has been passed, we'll discuss Peace Action's new three-part strategy in our drive for nuclear disarmament. It may surprise you, and we'll ask for your feedback!

Senator John Kerry is chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. He is in position to bring the Afghanistan War to an end if he exerts his influence. But so far he has only enabled more troop increases, more violence and more corruption and waste.
Join UJP, Peace Action, Veterans for Peace, and the Fund our Communities / Cut Military Spending 25% Campaign at a Brown Bag Vigil to bring the troops and war money home.
The vigil will be held downstairs from Sen. John Kerry's office.
