Decolonize, Demilitarize, Decarbonize – Divesting from Wars, Criminalization, and Militarism at Home and Abroad, to Invest in a Regenerative Future
Confronting the climate crisis and advancing a Just Transition to a regenerative economy demands an end to wars, military culture, and the violence of militarized forces and police in our communities and across the world. The U.S. military is the single largest consumer of fossil fuels in the world, and has served as the enforcer of occupation of Indigenous and sovereign lands while upholding violent resource extraction across the world. A Just Transition means shifting from economies of war and violence, to regenerative economies of life. This means investing in alternatives to policing and military intervention that advance accountability, healing, and transformative justice, including for those in the military and police, while upholding community self-determination and sovereignty.
