Online: Frontline Demands for Climate Justice

Speakers from Palestine, the Philippines and other Indigenous Communities

This Earth Day, speakers from Palestine, the Philippines, and other indigenous and frontline communities will discuss the conditions of climate disaster in the midst of intensifying militarization. Under the Israeli occupation of Palestine and the U.S.-backed Duterte regime in the Philippines, trees and forests are uprooted for settlements and extractive industries while land defenders are harassed and killed. Meanwhile, indigenous people here demand an end to criminalization and the return of their land. Clearly environmental justice means defunding the militarization that destroys both land and life.

Learn about existing legislation that focuses on ending U.S. complicity in human rights abuses supported by our foreign military funding programs, including H.R. 2590, the Palestinian Children and Families Act, and H.R. 3884, the Philippine Human Rights Act, as well as other vehicles that advance international climate justice by centering those most impacted by the combination of climate change and U.S. backed administrations.

Hosted jointly by the US Campaign for Palestinian Rights and the Malaya Movement USA, co-sponsored by Adalah Justice Project, Friends of Wadi Foquin, Grassroots Global Justice Alliance, NDN Collective, and MADRE.
