Webinar: Ceasefire Now for People and Planet

In the past months, Democratic Socialists of America has mobilized to end the Israeli siege on Gaza and its illegal, US-funded occupation of Palestine. Panelists discussed this resurgence of a Left anti-war movement in the context of the climate crisis and explore how ecosocialist organizers can deepen internationalism and anti-militarism within domestic climate organizing. Palestinian liberation is central to the climate justice movement—and why demilitarization is not only socially necessary, but a requirement for meeting climate and environmental goals.
