March with the Stop the Crimes Against Our Planet Contingent!


By War Criminals Watch - Posted on 24 August 2014

People Climate March  Sept. 21,2014  NYC   

Humanity and the Planet Must Come First

 World leaders have called for yet another International Conference at the UN in September. Their meeting will, however, do nothing to stop the global environment's escalating destruction. Using the justifications of “national security” and "business necessities," the US government itself has consistently sabotaged climate talks, supported dangerous drilling, fracking, plunder and exploitation of non-renewable energy resources here and around the world. It has also ruthlessly prosecuted and jailed environmental and animal rights activists explicitly as “terrorists.”

Only the direct action of thousands and eventually millions of people can create a movement that will stem nature's systemic abuse and its dire consequences for the planet. Politics as usual has not and will not reverse this disastrous direction. As World Can't Wait's Mission Statement warns: "That which we do not resist and mobilize to stop, we will learn - or be forced - to accept."

We must act to protect and preserve the world's fast-vanishing natural ecosystems and stem climate change catastrophe. If not, this planet could very well become uninhabitable for billions of people, and possibly all of humanity, as well as for much of the world's flora and fauna.


The United States government leads in crimes against the planet:

  • The Obama administration opposes any serious curbing of fossil fuel use in this country. The new rules on power plant emissions will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by only four percent below the levels measured in 1990, although scientists and climate studies have shown that massive cuts of 25 to 40 percent are needed by 2020 if there is to be any hope of preventing the very worst impacts of climate change.                     Photo by  Lance Page/Truthout.
  • In fact, the Pentagon is the world's biggest single user of fossil fuel, fueling illegitimate wars to maintain and expand the US empire. Oil is a strategic resource and the US government acts to control it at all costs, including the planet's very viability. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, for example, has been a cheerleader for US oil companies exploiting melting polar ice caps to drill in the Arctic Sea to pre-empt Russia.  
  •                                                                                                                                  
  • Fossil fuels are only part of the engine of destruction. For example, US government policy subsidizes large factory “farming” to produce meat, eggs and dairy resulting in 18 percent of all human-induced greenhouse gas emissions. Animal waste leaches antibiotics and hormones into ground and water; pesticides and fertilizers find their way into streams, rivers and coastal water thereby adding to ocean acidification.

Truly, the WORLD CAN'T WAIT!

March with the Stop the Crimes on Our Planet Contingent on September 21, 2014 in NYC for the People's Climate March. We bring a vision of a society built on sustainable resources and justice for all the world's peoples from right here in the heart of one of the main countries responsible for climate catastrophe.
