October 14, 2019

On this Indigenous Peoples’ Day show, Naomi Klein (@NaomiAKlein) returns to discuss her new book On Fire: The (Burning) Case for a Green New Deal.

Bute before that, anthropologist and Kurdish Women’s Movement Activist Elif Sarican (elifxeyal) joins us for an update and background on the situation in Syria. The significance of women’s equality to the Kurds. How are the Kurds reacting to Trump’s surprise announcement and the Kurdish invasion.

And Naomi Klein discusses the need to recognize we’re already suffering climate crisis and need to act with more urgency. New Orleans as a case study for climate crisis. Climate barbarism: what happens when cruel societies face climate crises. Why the Green New Deal framework is needed on top of environmentalism. The threat of climate apartheid and fortress borders as a response to climate crisis.
