There can be no solution to the climate crisis and no “climate justice” so long as the US military and its allies continue to pollute unabated, and to squander lives and resources. Likewise, there will be no end to war so long as global warming continues to accelerate. It’s time to break the cycle and end the death spiral!
Please join us in Cancun and beyond: “System Change” means No to War and No to Warming.

Film Showing and Discussion
This compelling and haunting documentary of war’s “silent casualty” -- the environment -- explores the under-reported, even ignored, ecological ramifications of war.
Weaving together scientific and eyewitness accounts from Vietnam and Afghanistan to Australia and the Pacific Islands, supported by onsite and archival footage, Scarred Lands & Wounded Lives vividly portrays the long-term damage to our planet resulting from the testing and production of weapons through the array of destruction from bombs, chemicals, guns and unexploded ordnance. The film confronts the immensely broad environmental devastation of war: pollution of our land, air and water and destruction of our biodiversity and entire ecosystems.

All troops home now from Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq!
End the siege of Gaza and all US support for the occupation of Palestine!
Fund Jobs, Health Care and Environmental Protection, not War & Nuclear Weapons!
Saturday, October 17 will be the date for a march and rally to protest the Afghanistan/Pakistan war, the continued occupation of Iraq, the militarist U.S. policies with respect to Palestine, Iran, and nuclear weapons, and the impact of the military budget on human needs at home.
As the Obama administration weighs whether to further escalate troop levels in Afghanistan, the moment could not be more timely to raise our voices in protest!
