Environmental Injustice

Islands First stands in solidarity with the victims of Cyclone Nargis. Please be generous in your aid.

From our friends at 350.org:

If this is any indication of the nexus of climate-related events and politics worldwide, the next decades will cost us dearly in human lives. This is ground zero, where climate justice becomes more than a campaign slogan, but a basic human right. It’s as much our responsibility in the global north to ensure that those people affected by climate-related events receive the resources and materials they need. It’s up to us, the youth, to make these connections worldwide, and to highlight how fragile these communities on the margins really are.
