IBON International has advanced a People-Powered Climate Action as a framework and collective resistance against dominant modes of oppressive climate politics. With climate justice at its core, a people-powered climate action aims to spotlight the unequal ways in which climate change impacts regions, communities, and the people who have done the least to cause our planetary crisis. It also stresses the urgency of consolidating leadership and resources to the peoples of the Global South in outlining the roadmap to genuine climate action.
The book critically examines the histories of Indigenous peoples, illustrates the power of collaboration between feminist grassroots organizations and the working class, and demonstrates the possibilities of a people-powered Green New Deal through a curation of essays from Alanah Torralba, Arnold Alamon, Isadora Cardoso, and Max Ajl.
