We want a "peace economy" that creates jobs, invests in our communities, restores and improves public services, saves the environment, and builds the infrastucture. We urge you to sign the petition at www.jobs-not-wars.org that calls for an end to the austerity and militarism that this Congress and Administration seem intent on.
Many (including British Prime Minister David Cameron) hoped that the G8 summit in Northern Ireland would start cracking down on international corporations that slide their assets around through tax havens like Bermuda and Monaco. They do it to save money on taxes, the in total they save trillions of dollars that their home nations badly need. This article from the Guardian gives some details of what went on and why Cameron's hopes for some reform at the summit were dashed (think USA). This is grossly unfair and unjust, but at the moment it is not illegal.
