We will focus on the continuing threats of the U.S. imperialist regime change agenda regarding Venezuela and Iran, with a major objective of seizing control of the biggest (Venezuela) and 4th biggest (Iran) oil reserves in the world. If this imperialist goal is realized, militarized fossil capital will surely extract this oil thereby leading the world ever closer to climate catastrophe. This issue should be front and center on the agenda of the global climate justice movement.
CLIMATE CRISIS, THE ENVIRONMENT AND U.S. MILITARISM: MAKING THE CONNECTIONS
The US military is responsible for the most egregious and widespread pollution of the planet, yet this information and accompanying documentation goes almost entirely unreported.

Sanctioned Countries Speak Out on COVID-19
Important webinar on Sunday May 31 at 4:00 pm Eastern!
At a time when many countries are working together to eliminate the COVID-19 pandemic, the United States is doubling down on its economic warfare that hinders access to medications and other basic necessities and is threatening to block Iranian tankers bringing aid to Venezuela. We will hear directly from government representatives of several countries under harsh US-imposed sanctions and military threats about the impact they are having and how they are responding.
Mark your calendars now. More details coming soon. Information will be available on sanctionskill.org
