Book Event: The Secure and the Dispossessed
June 6, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
“As Donald Trump hacks away at any traces of Obama’s climate programs and policies, there is a certain irony that the only defender of climate action within his cabinet of ideologues and billionaires has come from the US military, which would be the biggest single winner in Trump’s proposed budget.” –The Military Is Resisting Trump’s Denialism, but It’s Still Not a Force for Climate Justice.
Join the Institute for Policy Studies as we host a talk and book signing with Nick Buxton, of IPS sister organization, TNI (Transnational Institute) in Amsterdam. Nick works actively on issues of climate change, militarism and economic justice and is co-editor of The Secure and the Dispossessed – How the military and corporations are seeking to shape a climate-changed world (Pluto Press, November 2015).
This brownbag discussion and book signing with Nick will link the book to the reasons why climate justice requires us to resist the corporate and military power that the Trump administration seeks to entrench.
