Join Veterans for Peace and CODEPINK as we demand that the 27th UN Conference on climate change (COP27) cease exempting military emissions from its agreements. Show up, get loud, and help fight to MAKE COP MATTER.
This November, as world leaders convene in Sharm El-Sheik, Egypt for the 27th UN Climate Change Conference (COP27), veterans in the United States plan to take bold action across the United States to challenge the role of all militaries in the climate crisis, especially the US military. Even though with the Paris Climate Agreement at COP15, nations agreed to report and reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, military emissions were excluded. Again at COP26 in Glasgow, reporting of military emissions was not made mandatory. That is why, on 14 November, Veterans for Peace and allies will convene in New York City to tell the UN to demand all militaries report their emissions and announce their emission reduction plans. COP has the potential to ensure a peaceful and sustainable future for all – but only if we take bold action now.
Where: Meet at UN Mission (799 United Nations Plaza) for a rally and march.
When: November 14th, 8:00AM ET
Bring a sign about COP and military emissions if you’d like to make one, and wear pink!
