What is Climate Justice? Fighting racism and climate change    Thu Apr 22, 2021, Online, BC

What does climate justice look like? This is a particularly important question to address to adequately understand the role that colonialism and capitalism plays, not only in environmental destruction, but in how this destruction has been historically and currently placed to bear on Indigenous communities. In order to tackle the climate crisis, we need to tackle racism as well.

So-called Canada was founded on stolen Indigenous land. The colonial state has continued, throughout its history, to implement violent and colonial systems of policing, racism, xenophobia, and the so-called ‘rule of law’ in order to maintain control. From the exploitation and lack of protections given to migrant workers to the complete disregard to sovereign indigenous nations, we must stand united against colonialism and environmental racism.

Please join Climate Justice Victoria as we explore the history of colonial ecocide, and what movements on the ground are doing today to fight back.
