“More Powerful Together: Conversation with Climate Activists and Land Defenders” Jen Gobby.
On this episode we discuss Settler Climate Activist Support for Indigenous Climate Action with Jen Gobby, a white settler climate justice activist with a PHD from McGill. Dr. Gobby is the author of the new book entitled “More Powerful Together: Conversations with Climate Activists and Indigenous Land Defenders”.
Indigenous resistance to ecologically destructive resource extraction projects, ranging from the Ring of Fire mining development in northern Ontario to the oil and gas driven industrialization of Alberta’s Tar Sands, has been intense and unrelenting.
Indigenous opposition to fossil fuel mega projects has inspired a growing climate justice movement in this country and around the world demanding real action to eliminate climate-killing fossil fuel emissions after decades of political lip-service.
This interview examines some of the powerful possibilities and well as the complexities involved in building solidarity between Settler-based Climate Action groups and Indigenous communities.
