Climate Struggle means supporting Indigineous Struggle 

" Indigenous people are post-apocalyptic. In some cases, we have undergone several apocalypses. For my community alone, it was the destruction of the buffalo herds, the destruction of our animal relatives on the land, the destruction of our animal nations in the nineteenth century, of our river homelands in the twentieth century. I don’t want to universalize that experience; it was very unique to us as nations. But if there is something you can learn from people, it’s what it’s like to live in a post-apocalyptic society."

Alternative Finance / Bankrolling The Future We Want 

Financial news recently has focused on the fact that many areas in the Western world have either zero or negative interest rates. For loans this is potentially good news as they will become cheaper, but for savings this is bad news as you earn no money and are likely to go to a system in which you will have to pay for your savings. IF you have savings of course. Either way, going in business with regular banks contributes to exploitation of others through interest on loans or investments in fossil fuels or arms.

Contemporary finance is a set of horrible practices but it is a technique that can also be implemented in different progressive ways.

There are some alternative interest free banking systems that exits and as we approach negative 0 or - rates they become attractive also for those that can not afford ethical banking choices.

"The announcement by Morales came shortly after the commander-in-chief of the Bolivian armed forces, Williams Kaliman, exhorted him to resign"

To my ears this is a coup.

I don't know enough about the context, and would be interested in more (historical) sources.

Bolivia has one of the world's largest reserves of lithium in the world, a mineral essential for high(er) energy density batteries. That should not be forgotten..

"While anarchism is not the social democracy of the Labour Party, we should be aware that we are not going to create an anarchist society between now and December 12th. [...] Some will vote some will not but we can be united in one thing: our absolute hatred of capitalism. A Conservative victory will propel our society even further towards the dreams of the neoliberals. A Labour victory will not result in an end to capitalism. For all the talk of ‘socialism’, Labour has spent the last few years courting the business community who they will rely on in power. If you vote for Labour, you vote not just for the bits of their manifesto you agree with but those that you find abhorrent. That’s the awful deal offered to the public in liberal democracy. Labour will present a radically different alternative to the public but it will not result in the destruction of capitalism. What it will do is provide us with a rest from the worst horrors of economic inequality."

"hey mom what was it like living in 350ppm?"

the US government last night gave it's approval of a Turkish invasion of Northern Syria. This area is home to kurdish people who have set up a democratic communalist system of self-government there. It is anti-patriarchal, ecological, socialist and multi-ethnic. This is literally one of the most promising front lines of struggle. It is one of the front lines for . These are the folks that defeated IS. It is now thrown under the bus by the West.

it's been clear for 500 years now that environmental justice isn't going to come without full-scale decolonization

which requires white environmentalists do more than reinvent the wheel of neoliberal action as a means of centering their concerns and empire

if anything that's the biggest "we told you so moment"

moreso than the pithy political farts of white veganism

edit:
Sorry for spamming the timeline! After posting I reread the old CW / Topic ( was: Indigenous Struggle is Climate Struggle) and thought it came off as flattening indigenous struggles which I don't know enough about. I'm currently reading about decolonization and indigenous struggles and realizing how they are fundamental for climate justice and and how we should be supportive of those struggles.
