Policy analyst to speak on weapons proliferation and military

William Hartung, director of Arms and Security Project at the Center for International Policy, will tour the region Wednesday through Saturday to speak about weapons proliferation and the military-industrial complex.

He is the author of Prophets of War: Lockheed Martin and the Making of the Military-Industrial Complex and And Weapons for All.

Hartung will visit New England College in Henniker on Thursday at 11:45 a.m., Havenwood-Heritage Heights in Concord on Friday at 10 a.m. and the Concord Friends Meeting House in Canterbury on Friday at 6 p.m.

He will also make stops in Durham, Keene and Manchester.

The American Friends Service Committee, a Quaker organization dedicated to social justice and peace, is the primary sponsor of the tour, as part of its Governing Under the Influence project. The project encourages residents in New Hampshire and Iowa to discuss corporate influence behind militarism and incarceration with presidential candidates.

“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 ARSC in New Hampshire.
