Our group will have a large cardboard F-35 as a visual, designed to fall apart after it takes off, illustrating that the plane is wasteful and doesn’t event really work. We'll also have fliers to distribute asking people to contact Congress and urge them to cut military spending generally and for the F-35 in particular. Posters will be created modeling USAction’s “No F-35” graphic with dollar bills falling out. We anticipate about 20 people participating.
