Unfortunately, Pakistan is not alone, and their demands are part of a growing global climate justice movement which seeks to hold the Global North and corporations accountable for the crisis that they created. But, in addition to financial support to countries suffering the impacts of the climate crisis, we have to undo a global economic system that keeps them down, that works to keep countries in debt, and that forces them to adopt austerity measures that are fundamentally incompatible with the kind of societal investments needed to respond and adapt to climate change.
Join the DSA International Committee and guest speakers Olúfẹ́mi O. Táíwò (author of Reconsidering Reparations), Ammar Ali Jan (Haqooq-e-Khalq Party, Pakistan), Asad Rehman (Director of War on Want), and Bhumika Muchhala (Senior Advisory, Third World Network) to learn about the devastating situation in Pakistan and how Pakistan’s demands are linked to movements for debt and climate justice, and what truly transformative reparations should look like.
In June 2022, indigenous organizers principally led by the Confederation of Indigenous Nationalities (CONAIE) called for a national strike in the face of rising inflation, deteriorating social services, and lack of enforcement of constitutional rights by the right-wing and neoliberal government of Guillermo Lasso. The government responded with widespread violence and military crackdowns. Ultimately, the strikes went on for nearly a month before they brought the government to the bargaining table.
Indigenous organizers from the June 2022 national strike in Ecuador will join the DSA International Committee for a webinar in order to reflect on their organizing, report on the status of negotiations with the Ecuadorian state, and share lessons for the possibilities of massive labor action.
