How does militarism escalate climate breakdown? What’s antimilitarism got to do with climate justice? 

From the exemption of military emissions from carbon reduction targets, to military spending as a driver of emissions and diverter of climate finance, to intensifying military forms of greenwashing and the organised violence used to enforce ecocide and police environmental defenders… the links are many and in dire need of addressing. 

Join us online on December 8th for an hour of informal conversation with activists on the ground at COP28. Live from Dubai, they will tell us about their efforts to move military issues up the climate agenda, and to foreground demilitarisation as a strategy for climate justice.
