Webinar: The Overseas Military Base Empire
January 21, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST
The Overseas Military Base Empire: Presentation by Leah Bolger, President of the Board, World BEYOND War and retired U.S. Naval officer
Did you know that the United States has over 200,000 troops stationed on more than 800 bases in more than 80 countries and all 7 continents? The bases are the framework for the U.S. military strategy of “Full Spectrum Dominance.” There are all kinds of reasons why these bases should be closed:
*They are provocative and increase tensions throughout the world
*They are the cause of untold, irreversible damage to the environment
*They station troops who commit serious crimes against the “host” country
*They are a huge waste of hundreds of billions of dollars that could be used to fund human needs
World BEYOND War Board President Leah Bolger is a retired U.S. Naval officer and was stationed in four foreign countries. She will present on the social, environmental, and economic impact of U.S. bases and how to close them.
Co-sponsored by World BEYOND War-Central Florida.
