Lessons from the frontline: climate crisis resistance from around the world

In Chile, France, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Scotland, Trinidad and Tobago, South Africa and elsewhere, unions are fighting neoliberal energy policies that are not only failing to bring about the cleaner, more sustainable economies we need but are actually hindering the transition.
Join us to hear from workers who have occupied renewables yards in defense of green jobs and oil workers and metal workers who have been engaged in the day-to-day battles to prioritize human and ecological needs over profit and to stop climate change.
