Decolonising Environmentalism

The environmental movement has surfaced in recent years as a white, middle-class-led movement, however for the last few decades people across the world, predominantly from the Global South, have been fighting the injustices of the western society, one that has brought the worst consequences of climate breakdown to the people who contribute to it the least, by those who contribute the most. Come and listen to members of Extinction Rebellion discuss how we can transform a white-majority led, white-majority issues campaign into an intersectional struggle that incorporates an understanding of and commitment to eradicating colonialism, structural racism, and other forms of systemic oppression that lie at the heart of our ecological crisis.
