Stop the Climate Crisis: End War

    For too long, the movements to stop climate change and to end wars have
    not seen their struggles as one. A November 2019 event coordinated by
    the Peace and Justice Works Iraq Affinity Group set out to change that.
    Local Code Pink staff person Cody Urban appeared as part of a panel
    discussion to link the issues of climate change and war. Sahar Yarjani
    Muranovic, Executive Director of Oregon NOW, addressed US policy in
    Iran bringing a historical and personal perspective. Dan Shea of
    Veterans for Peace Chapter 72 talked about Venezuela, having visited
    that country in March 2019 (and in the 2000s). Host Theresa Mitchell of
    KBOO gave brief updates on the US' ongoing wars in Iraq, Afghanistan,
    Syria, Libya, Somalia and Yemen. The forum was held at the Augustana
    Lutheran Church.

    The two-part show was recorded by PC Peri and produced/edited by Dan
