Other Voices – The Connexions Newsletter – Climate Change and Social Change

November 27, 2015

The November 21 issue of Other Voices is now out.

This issue spotlights climate change, the escalating crisis that the upcoming Paris climate conference is supposed to address. Climate change is not a single problem: it is a product of an economic system whose driving force is the need to grow and accumulate. Nor does it affect everyone equally: those with wealth and power can buy themselves what they need to continue living comfortably for years to come – everything from air conditioning to food to police and soldiers to protect their secure bubbles – while those who are poor and powerless find their lives increasingly impossible. A serious effort to address climate change therefore means social change and economic change.

A number of resources featured in this issue address the deeper issues of climate change and social change.

We also have two articles responding to recent terrorists attacks and raising questions about causes and responses. In the Organizing section, we have reflections effective grassroots organizing by Renny Cushing, an organizer in the anti-nuclear movement in the U.S. in the 1970s and 1980s.
