Yesterday we were really excited to join friends at the ‘Climate Rising’ Event in London to see how we can move forward with the fight for climate justice in 2016. We opened up the event with some reflections on the London Climate march.
We really need to see immediate action on the racism we are seeing in the environmental movement. Let’s keep this conversation going to make sure we are both changing the organising the spaces that exist and that we are supporting and inspiring each other to build up our own spaces that support our communities. There are big questions that we need to address together about how and when we will resource the new movement we demand and the people who will be at the table to decide what that looks like.
What is very clear is that the work that we have been doing alongside indigenous allies, friends in the climate movement and our awesome network have really sown some incredible seeds for what climate justice work looks like.
We will keep listening to communities, being creative and bold in the face of colonialism and capitalism and we cant wait for you to join us!
