  10. Recovering antiracism

    • Azfar Shafi , Ilyas Nagdee
    22 အောက်တိုဘာလ 2020

    2020 has seen antiracism movements gain momentum and push back against institutionalised racism. However, despite the progress made, individualism and fragmentation continue to undermine solidarity and to depoliticise antiracism struggles. This paper explores how we can move towards an antiracist horizon by repoliticising antiracism struggles, analysing the function of racism and organizing collectively against the structures that underpin it, and understanding antiracism as a pillar for the emancipation of the dispossessed.

  16. Municipalisons l’Europe! Municipalités transformatrices, sortie de la crise du corona et le Pacte vert pour l’Europe

    05 နိုဝင်ဘာလ 2020 - Event

    Depuis le début de la pandémie du Covid-19, les municipalités à travers l’Europe ont joué un rôle crucial pour faire face à l’urgence en matière de santé publique et à la menace d’effondrement économique. Dans de nombreux cas, les municipalités sont intervenues là où les chaînes d'approvisionnement mondiales des entreprises se sont effondrées et où les gouvernements nationaux ont échoué. Même avant la crise du corona, de nombreuses villes avaient tourné le dos aux politiques néolibérales dominantes et mis en place des politiques progressistes audacieuses et innovantes pour traiter, entres autres problèmes urgents, de l’accès aux logements abordables, de la démocratie énergétique et des transports publics. Ces villes pionnières sont d’une importance fondamentale dans la bataille contre un changement climatique catastrophique et une inégalité galopante.

En muchos casos, municipalidades han intervenido donde las cadenas de suministro mundiales han colapsado y los Gobiernos nacionales han fracasado. Incluso antes de la crisis de COVID, muchas ciudades habían rechazado las políticas neoliberales dominantes e introducido políticas progresistas audaces e innovadoras sobre, entre otros temas urgentes, vivienda asequible, democracia energética y transporte público. Ciudades pioneras como estas son muy importantes en la lucha para combatir el cambio climático catastrófico y la desigualdad desmedida.

  19. Protecting Injustice

    • Alberto Alonso-Fradejas
    16 အောက်တိုဘာလ 2020

    The way that ownership and control of land and resources is managed and understood is changing globally, even as changes in financial markets and the climate catastrophe are putting increasing pressure on land and land-based resources. The changes taking place can appear progressive and positive - for example, more and more governments and other actors now recognize collective ownership of land. But the way change is taking place is less transformative than it looks and is in fact creating new opportunities for corporations to profit from land and natural resources, to the detriment of local communities. Our latest report explores how and why this change is taking place, what actors are helping to shape our understanding and management of land and natural resources, and who stands to benefit and to lose from these changes.
