A message to all readers from Extinction Rebellion Peace:
This is just to let you know that XR Peace have now written and finalised 4 new leaflets that you can see here
- CLIMATE CHAOS and COVID-19 PANDEMIC: DANGERS FOR OUR SECURITY WHEN WARNINGS ARE IGNORED
- GLOBAL CEASEFIRE NOW! SAVE LIVES, BUILD INTERNATIONAL SECURITY AND PEACE
- NUCLEAR WEAPONS IN COVID TIMES: DEADLY THREATS TO LIVES, HEALTH AND SECURITY (see below)
- USING NUCLEAR WEAPONS: HUMANITARIAN CATASTROPHE AND MASSIVE CLIMATE DESTRUCTION
You can see them all with linked references and also printable versions. Please, please send them out widely to friends, relatives, acquaintances, MPs, neighbours….. It is no good them sitting on a website – they are there to be used. This kind of information is needed to be out in the wider community.
Love and peace, XR Peace.
XR Peace is a coalition of organisations for peace and justice joining Extinction Rebellion. It has been estimated that about 6% of the global carbon footprint results from military-related activity. Militarism and war are inextricably linked with imperialism, racism, and the destruction of habitats. XR Peace proposes to make explicit the links between militarism and the climate emergency. We will also highlight the opportunities that are presented by transferring the resources, skills and people power from the military into addressing the climate crisis. We need systemic change if we and our ecosystem are to survive.
