War and Climate Justice

>> COP27: 2022 U.N. Climate Change Conference, Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt, <<

Modern warfare causes tremendous loss of life. It is used as a tool of oppression (including racism, classism, Islamophobia, and anti-Semitism) and genocide to install the dominant culture and to take control of land and resources. War makes huge profits for the owning class.

War has caused unprecedented environmental destruction. Preserving the environment is one reason among many to stop war. Racism and Islamophobia against Arabs and Muslims make it more difficult for people to join together in a united response to war and its impact on the environment.

In this workshop, we will:

  • Listen to each other tell our stories connected to war, migration, racism, and Islamophobia,
  • Examine the relationship between war and environmental degradation,
  • Learn the approaches used by Sustaining All Life and United to End Racism to heal from the damage of oppression, increase our effectiveness in the climate justice movement, and prevent burnout.
