Earth's Greatest Enemy
“Here’s the awful truth: even if every person, every automobile, and every factory suddenly emitted zero emissions, the earth would still be headed—head first and at full speed—toward total disaster for one major reason: the US military.”
Prof. Barry Sanders
author The Green Zone: The Environmental Costs of Militarism

We urgently need donations to make this film a reality. With no major funding, this film is a 100% grassroots effort.

Our first major shoot begins in September 2021, with Abby Martin and Dahr Jamail travelling to Alaska. We will be travelling to frontline communities resisting construction of US bases in Korea, Japan and beyond; toxic US military dump zones; chasing down war games and Department of Defense officials; and much more. In addition to major travel and equipment costs, we urgently need funds to hire our staff of editors, videographers, animators, producers and more.

We can only make this film if we reach our fundraising goals! All donors will receive exclusive updates and sneak peeks from Abby about the film progress.

Earth’s Greatest Enemy is the second feature film project by Abby Martin. In collaboration with the Empire Files team and award-winning journalist Dahr Jamail, Earth’s Greatest Enemy seeks to be a groundbreaking anti-imperialist environmental documentary.

It will center the US Empire—with its expansive war machine, Military Industrial Complex and junior partnersas not only a primary contributor to climate change, but the central entity that imperils life on Earth. Through on-the-ground investigations, high-profile interviews and new cutting-edge research, Earth’s Greatest Enemy will make the case that the movement to save the planet has no choice but to confront the beast that is American Imperialism.
