We are building a climate movement in which #BlackLivesMatter

All lives do matter, and I’d go further to say that all life matters. The reason that we explicitly say and support #BlackLivesMatter is white supremacist culture has made it clear that Black lives do not matter, or matter less. To be clear, saying Black lives matter does not mean that we think white lives don’t matter or that any murder or act of aggression carried out against anyone is acceptable. To merely say all lives matter though ignores the fact that the dominant culture has oppressed Black people for hundreds of years, and continues to do so.

Climate Justice Coalition Open Letter to COSATU on their Eskom Proposal

This is an open letter to COSATU written on behalf of the Climate Justice Coalition, a coalition of South African labour, social, health, environmental, human rights and climate justice civil society organisations. We are writing this letter to provide both praise and critique of COSATU’s proposal to fix Eskom. While there is much to discuss about the proposal, this letter focuses only on questions of climate justice.
