The climate crisis is an imperialism issue. It’s one of the first lessons we learn as climate activists, yet it’s also one of the first we forget. In our ambition to combat the most apparent aspects of the emergency we face, we often overlook some of the driving factors that lie beneath its surface, missing opportunities to make intersectional connections, build our community, and ultimately address the roots of the climate crisis.
If you are motivated to take your understanding—and your climate organizing—from the surface to a deeper level, come join like-minded Massachusetts Peace Action and 350 Mass activists on October 16th and 23rd from 12:00pm – 2:00pm for two self-contained, complementary webinars led by climate & anti-militarism organizer Nick Rabb.
These webinars will explore the intersections of anti-militarism and climate justice: from nuclear weapons to systems of domination and the U.S. empire. Throughout the program, we will foster inter- and intra-community relationships through small group discussions and idea-sharing, ultimately developing an alternative vision for a better future and discussing organizing strategies to bring that vision into existence.
The peacebuilding and climate justice movements can each be strengthened by the understanding that militarism and the climate crisis are two parts of the same issue: an issue we must address at its core rather than its surface. Collaboration between these and other interconnected although seemingly disparate campaigns will prove to be a key factor in our combined success—and in the survival of our species as we know it.
