Policy analyst and author William Hartung will tour the state from April 8 to 11 to speak about “Profits of War: The Military-Industrial Complex and the High Price of Defense.”
Hartung is the director of Arms and Security Project at the Center for International Policy in Washington D.C. He is the author of Prophets of War: Lockheed Martin and the Making of the Military-Industrial Complex.
“Corporations which profit from the manufacture of military weapons systems wield great power in our political system, leading to policies that reflect their private interests, not the actual needs of people,” said Arnie Alpert, co-director of the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) in New Hampshire.
AFSC is the prime sponsor of Hartung’s speaking tour. “His lectures covering issues such as weapons proliferation, the international arms trade, and the nuclear weapons lobby will provide valuable information for New Hampshire residents who are out talking with candidates for President,” Alpert added.
Hartung will be in Concord on Friday, April 10, at 10 a.m. at Tad’s Place, Havenwood-Heritage Heights, 149 East Side Drive, Concord, co-sponsored by the World Concerns Forum.
American Friends Service Committee is a Quaker organization dedicated to social justice and peace. For more information see afsc.org/nh.
