“We have more people as refugees than ever in human history. We have a bigger gap between rich and poor than ever in human history. And we also have terrorism and cyber-warfare. None of these issues can be dealt with by weapons. Last year, the world spent $1,686 billion on militarisation, while $30 billion could bring fresh water to every person on the planet, and $340 billion could bring food and nutrition to every person on the planet. And yet we spend multiples of this on guns. It’s obscene and it’s crazy. And we have to stop that. And we can.” ~ Scilla Elworthy, peace activist and author
