Making the Connections:
Militarism, Climate Chaos, and the Environment

A WAMM Zoom program, with Sue Ann Martinson

Endless war and militarism cannot continue and leave a livable planet.

Colonial extractions of resources are the root of the climate crisis.

Also available to view on WAMM’s YouTube channel.

A Note From Rise Up Times

Global and local peace and justice for all. Be engaged in activism

As COVID restrictions still limit participation in many “live” events we are gathering as we can and we are still on the web/social media with webinars, Zooms, and action announcements and emails, writing online comments and signing petitions, in car caravans, holding the courts accountable with online comments, virtual engagement with legislators, and over a virtual or real cup of coffee or a virtual or real neighborhood conversation, everywhere. And in touch by phone. Many of us are on the streets protesting war, racism, inaction on the climate crisis, attacks on the Palestinian people, and demanding police accountability and criminal justice reform and other worthy causes.

For over ten years Rise Up Times has spoken, bringing you articles of substance about issues of substance.

Rise Up Times publishes articles and information about issues that affect our lives daily and are a basis for action. A gift of $25 will make it possible to continue to bring you stories, actions, and events as well as thoughtful reflections and analyses.

Rise Up Times publishes writers who provide insights and knowledge that are a basis for informed action, whether on the streets or signing petitions, writing letters to the editor, talking to legislators, or otherwise engaging in transformative nonviolent actions to make change.

“Power is global and politics is local. That must change. We need a new language for understanding new global power formations as well as new international modes of politics to fight them. Social movements must move outside of national boundaries and join with others across the globe to fight the savagery of neoliberal global politics and central to such a task is the work of intellectuals, artists, cultural workers, and others who can fashion new tools and social movements in the fight against the current anti-democratic threats being imposed all over the globe.”                                                                           —Henry A. Giroux


The ‘apocalyptic’ chess game between the superpowers that is, between those that move on the highest plane of our civilization, is being played according to the rule ‘if either “wins” it is the end of both’; it is a game that bears no resemblance to whatever war games preceded it. Its ‘rational’ goal is deterrence, not victory, and the arms race, no longer a preparation for war, can now be justified only on the grounds that more and more deterrence is the best guarantee of peace. To the question how shall we ever be able to extricate ourselves from the obvious insanity of this position there is no answer.”
— Hannah Arendt in On ViolenceNUCLEAR WEAPONS ARE NOW ILLEGAL!
The U.S. needs to join other countries worldwide in
banning nuclear weapons.
