Organizing Meeting for the People’s Climate March in New York on September 21
Stop the Wars, Stop the Warming!
Time is urgent -- people are marching
Peace, environment, labor and justice -- movements converging
Will this be a turning point in people's history?
Featuring Boston College Prof. Charlie Derber and an organizer from 350MA
As peace activists we call on all who want to preserve our planet to join the People’s Climate March in New York City on September 21st and to form a Stop the Wars, Stop the Warming Contingent. We can’t afford the greenhouse gas emissions arising from the way we live and from war and preparation for war.

How Climate Change will Provoke World Conflict ...And Why Sustainability Is the Only Sure Road to Peace
"Iraq, Syria, Nigeria, South Sudan, Ukraine, the East and South China Seas: wherever you look, the world is aflame with new or intensifying conflicts. At first glance, these upheavals appear to be independent events, driven by their own unique and idiosyncratic circumstances. But look more closely and they share several key characteristics— notably, a witch’s brew of ethnic, religious, and national antagonisms that have beenstirred to the boiling point by a fixation on energy.... It would be easy to attribute all this to age-old hatreds, as suggested by many analysts; but while such hostilities do help drive these conflicts, they are fueled by a most modern impulse as well: the desire to control valuable oil and natural gas assets. Make no mistake about it, these are twenty-first-century energy wars." - Michael Klare, "Twenty-First Century Energy Wars", Truthdig, July 10, 2014

One year after the Nuclear disaster at Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Facility the situation is far from under control. Dangerous levels of radioactivity are still being found hundreds of miles from the site of the accident. More than 80,000 people have been forced to leave their homes with little hope of returning. In addition to the incalculable health costs, the decades-long process of clean-up and decontamination of almost 1,000 square miles of land may cost as much as 250 billion dollars with limited prospects for success.
