The Student Environmental Action Coalition will be supporting No War No Warming‘s protest against war and global warming on March 19th. There will be action and protests all week long culminating on the anniversary of the invasion of Iraq.

Militarism and the Environmentis just one of SEAC‘s current initiatives and recognises the link between the destruction of the environment and war.

What is No War No Warming?

No War No Warming is a colaboration of over 50 organisations, most of which are committed to creating a just and sustainable world like SEAC. They will be joining other groups on protest day in Washington to demand for an end to the war.

The environmental activist community believes the U.S. has an ‘addiction’ to fossil fuels. Their website claims that, “the profits of the oil companies are at an all-time high while hundreds of thousands die in Iraq and gas prices keep going up.”

Through nonviolent means, No War No Warming wants to send out a clear message to institutions that they feel are making profit from a war for oil. To keep up-to-date with the schedule visit www.nowarnowarming.org
