Show Notes


COP26 was seen as one of the final chances for the world to get it's act together and collectively fight to defend the human race from itself.  Are COPs even designed to be emancipatory? This week on the show we get a breakdown of everything that went on in Glasgow with our special guest Asad Rehman (@chilledasad100) from War on Want(@Waronwant).

We discuss how the climate movement has changed over the last 20 years, the history of solidarity in justice movements across the UK and the world How COP26 played out, the fight for justice with the Indian farmers why progressives need Milton Friedman and how we build climate into working class movements.
