SF: September 20, 2019: Join CODEPINK in support of the International Climate Strike

Event Description

Did you know that the U.S. Military is the world’s largest consumer of carbon and causes more pollution than 140 countries combined? Yet 63% of our discretionary budget is siphoned off to the Pentagon every year and weapons manufacturers continue to place their short term profit above the future of our planet.  

Funding endless war is an existential threat to human life-  that’s why we need to divest from war and invest in a Green New Deal!

On September 20th, young people across America are leading an intergenerational strike to demand that our government take serious action on the climate crisis. 

Join local CODEPINK activists around the country to mobilize in solidarity with the global climate strike. We’re joining young climate activists to strike for a future where human needs are placed before the corporate greed of weapons manufacturers!

    Thank you code pink for making the link and bringing the war economy to the light at the the climate strikes!

    No more wars for oil
    No more oil for wars
    No peace
    No planet
    END WAR

    No climate movement will succeed unless it includes the US war economy.
    AND

    THE WAR ECONOMY INCLUDES THE GIGANTIC US NUCLEAR WEAPONS COMPLEX INDUSTRY and the NEW COLD WAR.
    As the climate movements grow, it is crucial that we integrate this component, that is the nightmare of the world’s ultimate tool of mass destruction and genocide, into our message and our actions.
    Please see this recent article in the “Bulletin of the Atomic Scientist:”
    https://thebulletin.org/2019/09/we-need-a-green-new-deal-for-nuclear-weapons/

    “The atomic weapons race and the secrecy surrounding it crushed American democracy. It induced us to conduct government according to lies. It distorted justice. It undermined American morality.”
