The United Nations today observe the Day for Disarmament Awareness, promoting disarmament as a pathway for peace and understanding.

In 2021, global military spending reached $2.1 trillion dollars. Today, an organisation wants to boycott the National Youth Science Forum

for having global defence company Lockheed Martin as a major partner.

Teachers for Peace claims the company is just using the Forum to clean their image and promote weapons to students as part of the STEM

sciences.
