Moñeka and Tamara will discuss the North Atlantic Treaty Organization’s adverse impact on the climate and how globalizing NATO is preventing international cooperation needed for climate action. NATO is a US-led fossil fuel powered war machine that is derailing the Paris Agreement with its weapons and wars. The speakers will explain why it is so important to resist the military alliance and call for its abolition for climate justice.
With this webinar, the No to NATO Network and GWUAN aim to contribute to the ongoing discourse on issues related to the upcoming COP 28 in Dubai, UAE (November 30 to December 12), as well as to the preparations for counter-activities at the NATO 75th Year Summit in Washington DC (July 6 and 7, 2024). We want to sensitize the environmental and climate movements to the damage caused militarism and how military spending is diverting resources needed for climate justice. We cannot stop global warming if we don’t stop the wars of NATO. We need to learn about the damage that has been done by NATO to countries in the Global South and how this has undermined their capacity to deal with the worsening climate crisis. The aim of our webinar is find common strategies for climate justice and peace. Further webinars will follow.
