22/04/2022 @ 6:00 pm

Averting Climate Catastrophe: No New Arms Race!

Following an introductory presentation showing the links between militarism and climate change, a panel of experts will discuss how to proceed in uniting the peace and climate movements to avoid increasing militarism and worsening the climate crisis.

Moderator: Marcy Winograd of CODEPINK

Panelists:
• Ann Wright, author, activist, retired U.S. Army Colonel and U.S. State Department official
• Dr. David Vine, Professor, Department of Anthropology, American University and author of The United States of War
• Erik Edstrom, Afghanistan war veteran and author of UN-AMERICAN: A soldier’s Reckoning of Our Longest War

Presented by the Veterans For Peace Climate Crisis & Militarism Project: CCMP warns that an arms race resulting from the invasion of Ukraine will hinder efforts of major polluting countries to lower their CO2 emissions and will doom any meaningful international agreements later this year at COP27. In other words, we are no longer “sleepwalking to climate catastrophe,” we are running.
