Stop arms fair in London, England

Stop DSEI 2019: Climate Justice

Fossil fuel resources are captured and controlled using arms. Communities, whose lands are rich with fossil fuels are displaced by governments and corporations using arms.

Environmental destruction and increased greenhouse gas emissions are inescapably part of modern warfare, enabled by the arms trade.

The fossil fuel and arms industries feed off each other, creating massive wealth for a small number, at the cost of millions of lives and ecological destruction.

Day five of the Stop DSEI week of action was for Climate Justice.

Stop DSEI 2019: Conference at the Gates

In a day of collective (un/)learning we talked about the arms trade as a manifestation of state violence and racism, and the role of corporations in educational institutions like universities – through arms company funding, influencing syllabus content, and recruitment. Our liberation is collective, so our resistance must be too.

Climate protest at Venice film festival

Environmental activists stage sit-in on Venice Film Festival red carpet

Venice, Italy, (Camera: Jorge Ortiz). Hundreds of environmental activists staged a sit-in on the red carpet at Venice‘s Film Festival on Saturday calling on the international community to declare a climate emergency, winning plaudits from Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger and Canadian actor Donald Sutherland.

Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:

Hundreds of climate activists have occupied the red carpet for hours on the final day of the film festival in Venice. They demanded action against climate change and a ban on big cruise ships to dock in Venice any longer.

The more than three hundred participants, some dressed in white overalls, had signs with slogans such as Grandi navi no (no big ships) and Big ships kill Venice. The police kept a close eye on the demonstrators, but the demonstration was peaceful. The demonstrators left around noon.

The demonstrators were supported by Rolling Stones leader Mick Jagger and actor Donald Sutherland, who are in Venice for the premiere of the thriller The burnt orange heresy, in which they both play a role.

“I’m glad they do this because they’re the ones who inherit the planet“, Jagger said at a press conference. He also criticized the US American government, which he says is in the process of reversing all the environmental measures taken.

According to Sutherland, environmentalists must fight harder for their aims and deserve all the support they can get. He was also critical of the leaders of some major countries. “If you are my age, 85, and you have children and grandchildren, then you do not leave them anything at all if you do not vote those people in Brazil, London and Washington out. They are destroying the earth.”

Joe Biden Accepting [Big Oil] Lobbyist Cash After Pledging Not To

Status Coup’s Jordan Chariton reports on Joe Biden‘s campaign accepting donations from lobbyists after pledging not to.

Oil and gas production has doubled in some parts of the United States in the last two years, and scientists can use satellites to see impacts of that trend: a significant increase in the release of the lung-irritating air pollutant nitrogen dioxide, for example, and a more-than-doubling of the amount of gas flared into the atmosphere: here.
