No #ClimateJustice without #RacialJustice. Image
Racially, ethnically & nationally marginalized communities are more likely than other populations to be adversely affected by the primary drivers of the #ClimateCrisis (aka #FossilFuels & #Deforestation) & the measures to address climate breakdowns.
In particular, #FossilFuels not only drive the #ClimateCrisis; they also erode the resilience of fenceline & frontline communities to the ravages of climate change, through their impacts on the environment and public health, compounding climate vulnerabilities.

Indigenous leaders from Brazilian territories @ApibOficial and #XR Europe protested today infront of @EU_Commission demanding:

"Anti-deforestation law must include all regions/biomes, not just the Amazon in the 'Law on the Importation of Forest-Risk Products' (FERC)!"

Thread 🧵 ImageImage
@ApibOficial @EU_Commission The #EuropeanUnion is one of the largest buyers of soy and other forestry risk products from Brazil. This causes harm and destruction to #IndigenousPeoples and their lands.

“We need the EU government to stop these environmental crimes!” #StopEcocide ImageImage
@ApibOficial @EU_Commission Respect the International Rights of #IndigenousPeople!

Indigenous Land is a guarantee for the future of all humanity. There is no solution to the #ClimateCrisis and #Biodiversity loss without Indigenous Peoples - @ApibOficial

Nuancen des #IPCC AR6, wie diese - Anerkennung der besonderen Interessen und Zugänge von #IndigenousPeople - finden sich erst bei detaillierter Lektüre. Bei fast 3000 Seiten ist das eine Zumutung. Wir brauchen neue Kommunikationsformate jenseits der Bibel.
… aber diesseits von #Infografiken, eile ich hinzuzufügen.
Diesseits <-> Jenseits, egal, jedenfalls ein Format, das den öffentlichen Diskurs ermöglicht, lesbar ist.

1| I try to focus on a single story in every post, but I want us to have proportions. So let's compare and contrast #Israel's response to @benandjerrys's not wanting to be complicit in its #WarCrimes, to Israel's actual war crimes.…
2| The beautiful soul in this picture is 11 year-old Mohammad ‘Allami, who was executed by Israel's army, when he was convincing his daddy to go back to a shop to by him something. Mohammad's sister was also in the car, she wasn't physically injured.
3| Mohammad 'Allami is the 312th indigenous #Palestinian to be killed by Israel's army since the beginning of 2021, the 52nd to be executed in the #WestBank, the 76th #child executed in total, the11th child to be executed in the West Bank.

🚀🟥⏯️Watch the #REPLAY of the captivating interview of the archaeologist of #space Alice Gorman @drspacejunk by @TiphineLucas, that addresses #spacejunk, #colonialism and #aboriginal & #indigenouspeople issues⬇️1/🧵
#ecoleanthropocene2021 @EcoleUrbaine
2/🌏#Earth is surrounded by a constellation of tens of thousands of #satellites in orbit, but also of billions of #spacejunk of more or less large size, fragments coming from rockets or satellites, travelling at a very high speed: important risks of #collision.
3/💥#Kessler syndrome: we are rapidly moving towards a tipping point where the volume of space debris in low orbit is such that collisions are frequent, generate other debris and exponentially increase the probability of collisions.

This #IndigenousPeoplesDay, densely populated urban areas have garnered most of the media attention and public health response. What has been largely ignored is the impact of #COVID19 on Indigenous Peoples, writes WCS's David Wilkie.

First, Indigenous Peoples are at high risk of dying from the disease should they get it. This is because Indigenous Peoples tend to be:

👉geographically isolated
👉politically marginalized
👉economically insecure
👉neglected by national public health services

They are particularly vulnerable because most communities have wholly inadequate access to PPE and lack Western medicines and facilities. #IndigenousPeoplesDay

"For us, #indigenouspeople, each one of us is important, as are all the elements and beings of nature."

Thyara Pataxó @PataxoThyara explains the role of elders and children in keeping #indigenousheritage.

#Pataxó #IndigenousPeoples #LandBack
"Our elders are holders of great wisdom. In addition to their duties and rights within our communities, the elder is primarily responsible for maintaining traditional teaching practices and passing on indigenous knowledge." 👵🏾👴🏾
"Indigenous children also have an important role in preserving the traditional knowledge. The kids immortalize the biggest ancestral treasure of indigenous people: our culture. They are the means through which knowledge and traditions are kept alive." 💚✊🏾

I’ll never forget the thrill I felt at the Elders & Traditional Peoples Gathering 2 weeks ago at @TrentUniversity, meeting #Cree actor/artist #MichelleThrush and #Anishinaabe journalist/author @TanyaTalaga, as well as being surrounded by some of the most epic people in my life. ImageImageImageImage
Thrush’s solo performance of #InnerElder wove a beautiful blend of truth, laughter, pain & hope. Got Talaga’s autograph after she spoke about her book, #SevenFallenFeathers, a must-read for folks seeking #truth about how we continue to fail Indigenous youth.

OMGAWD the #chemicalvalleyproject still has my heart pounding from its creativity, authenticity and raising awareness around environmental racism in Canada - particularly the petrochemical industry. So masterfully performed and written by @strangechanges. #asiancanadianartist Image
The #chemicalvalleyproject reveals a side of Canada that is not so very “Canadian.” If you are hoping to learn more about #indigenouspeople or trying to figure out your relationship with them, please check this out. Tonight is their last showing at 7:30pm. @broadleafto
