Programme
Who owes who? Corporate polluters and the climate crisis
Black-E Theatre
26.09.2022
5:30PM – 7PM

The climate crisis was caused by the countries and corporations of the global north, and is rooted in the historical and ongoing exploitation of colonialism, empire and neoliberalism. The North owes the South in reparation. But somehow, it is the fossil fuel corporations who are getting payouts, via secret tribunals written into trade deals - which themselves have their origins in colonialism. Join us to discuss who actually owes whom, and how we can change this broken system.
