Maybe we need a radical education

Maybe we need a radical education

As Nelson Mandela once said, “education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” Education plays such a huge role in our lives and is responsible for the development of humanity. But what if our education system is outdated? What if we’re doing this all wrong? How could we adapt the way we learn to keep up with the modern world?

All We Have is Each Other: Climate Change and Disability Justice

All We Have is Each Other: Climate Change and Disability Justice

Finn Millwood

July 25, 2021

A commitment to Climate Justice means strengthening and reaffirming the statement at the centre of Disability Justice: that no body or mind is disposable. The white supremacist mindset that says people are only valued if they are able to perform productivity for the profit of the rich is the same mindset that denies Disabled, racialised and poor people the right to live, and then to live meaningful lives, and the same mindset that scorches, drowns and chokes the Earth.

What's happening in Palestine and why are we talking about it?

What's happening in Palestine and why are we talking about it?

We've spoken a lot about climate justice and what that means for our campaign - as climate justice activists, we must stand up for marginalised communities who are hit the hardest by the environmental breakdown. The Palestinian residents of Gaza and the West Bank are massively affected by the impacts of the climate crisis. As a country in the so-called 'global north' the UK is complicit in settler colonialism happening right now in Palestine. We recognise that we have a huge amount of privilege as well as a platform - therefore it is our responsibility to stand up for the freedom of Palestine and its people.
