26 April @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
On 26th April, a global twitter storm will take place to coincide with the publication of the Stockholm International Peace and Research Institute (SIPRI) figures on military spending. In the UK we’ll focus our activity in the morning from 8am-10.30am to try to get the issue trending, but feel free to use the hashtags all day.
The hashtags we’ll be using are #DefundTheMilitary and #HealthcareNotWarfare. Twitters guidance is that ‘One to two relevant hashtags per Tweet is the sweet spot’. Please tweet your own message of support during this time and retweet others’ messages as widely as possible.
Their are already a range of graphics to use on the day and the Global Campaign on Military Spending will be creating more over the coming days and sharing editable templates so you can make your own.
