Resolution 2019-7 Stop Military Encroachment On The Environment

Whereas, The Department of Defense is engaged in dramatic expansion of bases and warfare trainings around the county by expanding military training on public lands, avoiding the impacts of military expansion by segmenting projects, and by using the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process to instruct the military in how to get what it wants, including initiating land-use legislation in state legislatures, and

Whereas, to further it's national expansion plans, The US Army War College created a guide for enabling more military operations on public lands. The "Military Training on Public Lands: Guidelines for Success" is still the Bible of military land grabs for the public lands and contains a whole section on NEPA, and

Whereas, base and training expansion proposals are taking place across the country at bases like Eglin in Florida and Lemoore in Nevada, and in communities like Burlington, Vermont, Whidbey Island, Washington, and in Colorado, New Mexico, and Arizona, and etc., and

Whereas, it is essential for the public to engage in a public policy discussion about the massive military expansion underway in the United States, Veterans for Peace can provide leadership and support for strengthening NEPA policies and for state efforts like Washington's Attorney General in making the military follow the law;

Therefore Be It Resolved that Veterans For Peace will support state efforts, like Washington's Attorney General Robert Ferguson, to take action to protect citizens, our environment, and make the military follow the law, which includes strengthening the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) to stop military encroachment on public lands, air, and seas, and its adverse impacts on our communities.
