  1. How much would it cost to put one in Times Square?

  2. Peter Ehrhorn says:

    It would be interesting to see how this was arrived at. Military spending is large no doubt but that large? And what exactly does it mean to end world hunger? How would this be determined? We don’t have billboards in Hawaii.

  3. Teresa Reinhardt says:

    If you could provide an electronic file,
    people could print their own for display
    in a lot more places.

  4. catherine anonymous says:

    Seriously, how much

  5. What billboard companies are these?

  6. Good work I love this! Thank you!

  7. Kyle Van der Panck says:

    Good work! The war machine has reaped humanity for too long! It’s not too early to root these families from their comfy coves and expose who they are.

  8. Dora SCHIMANKO says:

    In European cities billboards are often managed by the relevant county council. Especially in cities hosting international organizations (eg. Paris, Brussels, Vienna) your billboards could be quite effective and, perhaps, not so extremely expensive, and will probably not be refused.

  9. great approach. we are losing propaganda war.

    any thoughts for publicity?

    celebrity endorsements?

    really would like to see this catch on.

    heard at caucus99.

  10. You should also provide individual lawn signs for people to put in front of their houses. These would be cheap, and effective. I’d like something like that.

  11. Simone Meeker says:

    I would like a lawn sign stating that 3% of U.S. military spending could end starvation
    on earth. (with your logo)

    I will have t shirts printed with that and your logo for myself, my husband and our son, unless you have them printed already.

  12. Upper Hudson Peace Action, which in the Capital District of Albany, NY, is interested in putting up a billboard in conjunction with your project. We are aware of Women Against War doing so in Albany and Schenectady, and would like to join in the efforts. Please contact me regarding how to go about this, costs, etc. Thanks you.

  13. If these images are in the public domain, I could post them on my website(s).

    David,
    Wanting to do billboards in the Twin Cities. Any suggestions for companies to go with? Would your group be willing to be partners with Veterans For Peace and WAMM in this endeavor?

  15. Alaska Peace Center might put one on busses.
