    Storming the Wall:  Climate Change, Migration, and Homeland Security

     Book signing with Tucson author Todd Miller 

     Saturday, November 18th                           2:00  pm

     “Todd Miller’s book is about how social justice and environmental sustainability are one and the same struggle.  With millions of people forced to move because of climate change, four times more than by wars, too many developed countries have reacted by calling for walls, high tech surveillance and military solutions.  Migrants have reacted with defiance and resistance. Miller feels that climate driven migration is the defining issue of our time and calls for environmental restoration instead of border militarization.  “
