Floating for Environmental Justice at the Pentagon

Posted by Erin Bechtol

A flotilla was organized by World Beyond War and The Backbone Campaign in front of the Pentagon on Sunday, September 17, 2017 as part of the Campaign Nonviolence Week of Actions.

The U.S. military is responsible for 69% of environmental disaster Superfund sites in the United States. It’s the biggest consumer of petroleum, consuming more than most entire nations. It poisons large areas of the globe with white phosphorus, napalm, depleted uranium, and much more. It’s the third biggest polluter of U.S. waterways. It also swallows up over 50% of federal discretionary spending every year, a fraction of which could dramatically transition the United States to sustainable practices.

We need to bring the peace and environment movements together. Here’s a chance.
