People often associate warriors with violence. However, to be a Pacific Climate Warrior means to be strictly non-violent, and to stand strongly in a dignified and peaceful manner for the future of the Pacific Islands. These are the principles of a warrior that we stand by:
A warrior is resilient. A warrior is not aggressive or violent, but is assertive. A warrior serves to protect their community, culture, land and ocean. A warrior is always learning. A warrior responds to the needs of those around them and of the greater good. A warrior non-violently stands their ground against an adversary, against injustice and against oppression. A warrior respectfully embodies their local culture and traditions. A warrior is accountable for their actions and words. A warrior serves those who cannot fight for themselves – future generations, animals and plants, environments.
