The twin global threats: The Iraq war and the threat of climate change

With less than one week until the NoWar NoWarming intervention, momentum is quickly building. Now is the time to decide how you want to participate!

On Monday, Oct. 22, NoWar NoWarming is taking direct action on Capitol Hill. Several hundred people will engage in creative, nonviolent civil disobedience to disrupt the business-as-usual that keeps the war going and the planet heating. Young people and those young at heart will be using their bodies to make a loud statement that we are outraged at the lack of action a year after a new, Democratic-controlled Congress was elected. We want action now to end the war, bring all the troops home and address the climate crisis!

Help make this action a success! You can get involved by joining our mass action, creating your own Action Group, or take a look at other potential action scenarios. If you want to participate, please fill out our action form. You can also go to our website to find updated information on trainings, workshops, meeting locations and other important information.

This Thursday, Oct 18, at
7pm EST, we are hosting an Action Spokescouncil for Action Groups to share their ideas and begin coordinating their actions with one another. If you would like to be at this meeting or on this call, please email or call 1.888.OCT22.DC for more information.

If you have any other questions about the action, you can call our organizers at 1.888.OCT22.DC. We'll make sure that someone gets in touch with you to answer all of your planning needs!

A national buzz about NWNW is building, but we still need more organized and committed people to join the DC action! Want to help to spread the word about NWNW?

People are hard at work in DC getting prepared for the major action on Monday, October 22. There will also be local actions around the country for those who cannot be on Capitol Hill on the 22nd.

These last two weeks are crucial to making this groundbreaking event successful. Help us keep building! The time is now to STOP, SHIFT and GO forward for peace, justice and the earth!
