NO to the fighter jet billions

16.09.2020, Upcoming federal popular votes

Fighter jets do not bring human security and real equality!

The new fighter jets are expected to cost up to 24 billion Swiss francs over their lifespan. Money that would be better invested in day-care places, in real parental leave or in the recognition of care work. Genuine human security is not achieved through military armament, but through greater protection against violence, preventive work and a well-funded social security and health system. 

This is why we will say NO to the Federal Decree on the Procurement of New Fighter Aircraft on 27 September 2020.

Watch our co-president Ruth-Gaby Vermot in the discussion programme "Club" on Swiss TV about this topic (in Swiss German).
