Today the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Working Group II has launched a report on impacts, adaptation, and vulnerability. But what is it exactly telling us about climate change? 🧵
Climate change is already killing people, destroying nature, and making the world poorer.
Extreme events like heatwaves, floods, droughts & wildfires are becoming more frequent, intense & long-lasting, harming people, infrastructure, and the natural world.

As a movement, we stand against war, occupation, and its colonial & imperialist nature. We stand in solidarity with the people in Ukraine. #StandWithUkraine
Now lets talk about extractivism, decolonization and landback 🧵✨
I'm still @re_cabrerab and this is my last thread :(
In the last 500 years, there has been a political, economic and cultural reconfiguration in which Europe took the lead, putting the global south at the bottom, dispossessing BIPOC communities of their territories+

“Another World is possible, a world where many worlds fit'”
This phrase has its origin in the Zapatista indigenous revolution, but it’s been used many times by activists who reproduce the white supremacism of the European climate movement.
No more. Shut up and listen! 🧵
Is me again(@re_cabrerab) came to tell you what it represents, and to let you know about the last 30 years of revolution in México.
We can’t understand climate justice without understanding revolutionary movements as the Zapatistas and the National Indigenous Congress in México

Destroy de patriarchy not the planet, lets talk about how climate justice has to include gender justice 🧵✨
@re_cabrerab still here lets start!💜✨
Women are more vulnerable to the consequences of the climate crisis, not only because they represent the majority of global poverty, but also because we are statistically more dependent on currently threatened natural resources+

A LOT OF EUROPE'S AND GLOBAL NORTH CLIMATE MOVEMENT IS
RACIST and COLONIALIST
That is why we need to talk about INTERSECCIONALITY✨ 🧵
Intersectionality essentially, looks at how a person's various cultural,political,and social identities(such as gender identity,sexual or romantic orientation,racial identity, nationality, religion,disability, and more) intersect and create systems of discrimination, or privilege
The catastrophic climate scenario that we are living in is the result of centuries of exploitation and oppression through colonialism, extractivism and capitalism +
The ruling class, primarily through corporations and governments from the Global North dominated by affluent, white, heterosexual cis-males, have exercised their power, gained through colonialism, capitalism, patriarchy, white supremacy and exploitation, to destroy the earth+

Those who "try to reach out to all groups of people", are actually people who try to reach out ONLY to the mainstream media, the mainstream politicians, and mainstream prejudices.
They prefer to be applauded by the dominant class than to deffend the dignity of the opressed.

It's not enough to declare yourself anti-racist, you need to be anti-racist and betray whiteness.
It's not enough to "support" marginalized communities, you need to delegitimize structures of opression and elites IN YOUR OWN SPACES. 🧵
I’m (still) @namevdelang (they/them) from México, and I’m taking over @friday4future twitter today. My dad and I did the new artwork and design for Fridays for Future. 🌻🌺

The pandemic has left a pessimistic youth. It's been reported that in the last two years there has been a 400% increase in symptoms of anxiety/ depression socially.
Something's clear: Hope, and not panic, is the most powerful and urgent tool for our political action. 🧵
Btw, I’m @namevdelang (they/them) from México, and I’m taking over @Friday4Future twitter. My dad and I did the new artwork and design for Fridays for Future. Follow my personal account if you want

Do you know what the new visual identity of FFF means? It means the movement needs to be less white-european.
We need a more queer-black-brown-indigenous-disabled RADICAL ANTI-COLONIAL movement. The most vulnerable people should not only be included, they should lead. 🧵
Btw, I’m @namevdelang (they/them) from México, and I’m taking over @friday4future twitter today. My dad and I did the new artwork and design for Fridays for Future. 🌻🌺
This is the first of 3 threads I’ll do today. Follow my personal account if you feel like it 😌

The Swedish Government is currently about to decide on a proposal to open an iron ore mine in Gállok on indigenous Sámi land. The Sámi are Europe’s only recognised Indigenous people, living in a part of the world experiencing heating four times faster than the global average. 2/6

Yesterday was Friday 😈
and Friday=Strike day,
Check out this thread 🧵to see how countries around the world went on strike. #FridaysForFuture
We stand with the Palestinian people against settler-colonization. We stand against all forms of colonialism and systematic repression by militaries and institutions.
To be clear, in response to some feedback we've received from previously shared posts, we stand against antisemitism and all forms of discrimination.
We know that in certain countries the BDS movement may have been co-opted or taken away from its intended purpose.
