A year after President Trump's inauguration, our worst climate policy nightmares have become a reality. Fossil fuel interests have hijacked every part of the new administration—the State Department, Department of Interior, Environmental Protection agency, Department of Energy and National Economic Council, and the list goes on and on. Meanwhile, the intensity of global-warming fueled devastation increases daily as over a century of fossil-fueled war and violence against labor and nature rages on. Latin America is familiar with this kind of violence.

Join us for a discussion that brings together contributors from NACLA's latest issue, Fossil Fuels and Toxic Landscapes, with internationally recognized activists and organizers for a discussion on the fight for environmental justice, sustainable energy, and a livable future across border—from New York to Houston to Oaxaca.

  • Elizabeth Yeampierre, UPROSE
  • Bryan Parras, Beyond Dirty Fuels, Sierra Club
  • Todd Miller, Independent Journalist
  • Alexander Dunlap, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam
  • Moderated by Nicole Fabricant (Towson University) and Bret Gustafson (Washington University)

And join us on Facebook!

Sponsored by the North American Congress on Latin America (NACLA), New Politics, and the Democratic Socialists of America Climate Justice Working Group.

Note from the editorial board:
If you’ve read this article to the end, you probably thought it was worth your time.
We hope you’ll also think it’s worth a few bucks (maybe more!) so that New Politics, run entirely by volunteers, can continue to give readers informative, timely analysis that is unswerving in its commitment to struggles for peace, freedom, equality, and justice — what we call socialism.
You have only a few weeks to donate to our annual fund appeal, during which we raise the money to publish. You can also subscribe, if you haven’t already. A digital-only sub is shockingly inexpensive and gets you our print issue weeks before the material is posted.
We won’t send you  a coffee mug, T-shirt, or tote bag.  What you’ll get instead is our thanks and a  deep, fuzzy satisfaction that you’ve contributed to bringing ideas that are more relevant than ever to new readers, helping to change the world.
