War = Climate Change = War = Climate Change... Time to Break the Cycle!

[UJP has signed on to this statement by Climate SOS - Ed.]

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.
