Ellen Augustine and Barry Hermanson are Californian residents who have started a campaign to alert fellow citizens to the gross overspending of the US military budget.

Their campaign, called Not My Priorities, centers on educating people through a simple pie chart about the discrepancy in spending on the Pentagon versus all other areas in the national budget.

Hermanson, who founded the campaign was a Green Party candidate for congress in California's 12th Congressional District. Augustine also ran for the US congress, and founded four non-profit organisations. This is an inspiring interview with two people who believe Americans can harness their democratic process, and really make a difference.
