From Vermont to Venezuela: Building a Global Movement for Social and Environmental Justice
Vermont and Venezuela may seem worlds apart, but they confront similar challenges — economic crisis, climate change, and predatory multinational corporations. Join us to connect the dots and think big about a global movement for social and environmental justice which is growing from the bottom up all around the world.
Watch it all here:
Quincy Saul from Ecosocialist Horizons will report from his recent travels in Venezuela, where grassroots movements of seed savers are passing new laws to ban GMOs, and where small farmers are taking the lead towards food sovereignty on a national scale.
Kate Kanelstein from the Vermont Workers’ Center will report on their work to secure social and environmental justice in this state, from their Healthcare is a Human Right campaign, to their current plans for a second Vermont People’s Convention in May in collaboration with several VT groups.
