Background Bloc Against Climate Racism:
The Climate Crisis didn’t just fall from the sky but was forged by centuries of colonial capitalist politics and laws. This unfortunate history has been shaped by ideology of human-supremacy and white-supremacy and capital-supremacy. This has meant that profit has been accumulated by violating places and people deemed sacrifice-zones.
Environmental racism has been studied as localized politics of oppression where Indigenous & black and brown people are suffering most from toxic dumping / pollution in their waterbasin, air, landbase or suffer pollution in their working conditions. By discussing Climate Racism we look at a bigger systemic problem through four lenses: historical climate racism, political climate racism, military climate racism and the reproduction of climate racism in storytelling in whitestream environmentalism.
For an in depth workshop on Climate Racism to deepen understanding of colonial roots of climate crisis we welcome you to reach out to book a training-day: firstname.lastname@example.org

21st of March:
The International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination is observed annually on 21 March. On that day, in 1960, police opened fire and killed 69 people at a peaceful demonstration in Sharpeville, South Africa, against the apartheid “pass laws”. Proclaiming the Day in 1966, the General Assembly called on the international community to redouble its efforts to eliminate all forms of racial discrimination (resolution 2142 (XXI)).
