Our show today is focusing on environmental justice and land struggles in the Americas. Given the many protest movements we have been seeing this year against hydraulic fracking, megadams, and climate change, we wanted to hear what folks are doing to protect the land, water and air across the Americas. There is a new front against the land and it’s people; extreme violence, dispossession and displacement is common place in the wake of neoliberal restructuring, or what some have called the recurring cycle of global economic crisis. However, many compañeros are making reference to a new level of neoliberal assault on the common that impedes people’s democracy and the regeneration of the social fabric. This is what they call extractivism, and the attack of extractivism is expressed in the struggles we are highlighting. Today we will be learning about movements in defense of indigenous lands from a Nahuatl collective in Puebla, México fighting against a thermoelectric plant and from Kansas activists working on wetlands defense in Wakarusa territory. We will also have an in-studio live interview with Silm Bones, from the Energy Solidarity Cooperative here in the Bay area to learn about the climate resiliency strategies they are building locally. Finally, we will speak with Christian Guerrero from Marea Creciente, a climate justice organization in México, about the Climate Caravan being organized for the next international climate talks. We put these interrelated struggles to protect communities and future generations from environmental degradation this month, in the hope to think about what we can all do to build a future where the earth will be able to sustain a world where many worlds fit.
