Global Days of Action on Military Spending 2024

April 13 - May 12

Global Days of Action on Military Spending takes place in mid-April as part of the awareness month every year. This year, it takes place from April 13 to May 12, with the day being determined by reports on military spending. It aims to bring people across the continents to focus public, political, and media attention on the costs of military spending and the need for new priorities.

Annually international spending on weapons rises faster than the inflation rate and GDP, which is concerning. This is exactly what the Global Day of Action on Military Spending (GDAMS) groups around the world aims to achieve – to advocate a shift of budget priorities and promote spending of the excess budget money on human development.
