Welcome news from CT:
A resolution of the Central Connecticut State University Faculty Senate calling upon the U.S. government and President Obama to Bring Our War Dollars Home Now
the economic collapse has exhausted the financial resources at the local, county, state and federal levels of the US; and the U.S. government since 2001 has spent well over 1 trillion dollars nationally on the wars and occupations in Iraq and Afghanistan. In Connecticut nearly 28 billion dollars has gone to war spending; and more than 5,700 US troops have been killed, more than 40,000 wounded; and
hundreds of thousands of civilians have been killed or wounded and the ongoing warfare poses great and unnecessary harm to the nations of Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Pakistan and elsewhere in the world; and billions of tax payer’s money is spent to prop up repressive regimes in the Middle East and elsewhere around the world; and education at all levels is in crisis due to the diversion of billions of dollars to wars and occupations. College tuition and student debt is increasing while university programs and courses are cut; and budget deficits, largely due to war spending, have been used as a pretext to force concessions from public sector unions from California to Wisconsin to Connecticut; and communities of color in Connecticut have been hardest hit and are heavily targeted for military recruitment,
Be it resolved that the Central Connecticut State University Faculty Senate calls upon the U.S. government and President Obama to end the wars and occupations in Iraq and Afghanistan and bring our war dollars home now. Now be it further resolved, that the Central Connecticut State University Faculty Senate support informational events regarding the cost of the wars and occupations to our campus and community; that the Central CT State University Faculty Senate support the right of public sector unions and all other unions to collectively bargain and defend the interests of their members
that the Central CT State University Faculty Senate urge students, staff and faculty to participate in peaceful protests to demand an end to the wars and occupations and bring our war dollars home; and to further demand money for education, not for war.
