CCPM demonstrated on Saturday, August 19 from 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon at the court house in downtown West Chester (Market & High Streets) as we held another “Theft of War” protest while collecting school supplies (pens, pencils, markers, crayons, notebooks, paper, etc.) to be distributed to families in need among the West Chester community.
The administration’s budget seeks to slash spending on the Education Department by $9.2 billion, or 13.5 percent, cutting significant programs designed to help lower-income students, while seeking a $54 billion increase in military spending!
Folks came out with signs to protest the federal government’s $54 billion increase for military spending!
& brought your donated school supplies!
Import Peace / No Education Cuts!
“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 not clothed.”
Dwight D. Eisenhower
