Solidarity: An Evening with Joshua Virasami and Wretched of the Earth
5 December 2019 Free

Following last year’s Solidarity event, we are happy to welcome Joshua Virasami back to ONCA along with Kieran Kirkwood of Wretched of the Earth for an evening of conversation.
Wretched of the Earth is an activist coalition based in the United Kingdom, representing the interests of the Global South and people of colour in response to climate change.
Together, we’ll be exploring questions of climate justice ranging from the Green New Deal to ways to organise and build solidarity across borders and between communities. Welcomed by Youth Strike 4 Climate Brighton.
