Artist Zoey Roy leads the conversation on The End of This World: Climate Justice in So-Called Canada with contributors Angele Alook, David Gray-Donald and Bronwen Tucker. 

 

In this compelling roadmap to a livable future, Indigenous sovereignty and climate justice go hand in hand. The climate crisis is here, and the end of this world—a world built on land theft, resource extraction, and colonial genocide—is on the horizon.

 

Drawing on their work in Indigenous activism, the labour movement, youth climate campaigns, community-engaged scholarship, and independent journalism, the six authors challenge toothless proposals and false solutions to show that a just transition from fossil fuels cannot succeed without the dismantling of settler capitalism in Canada. 

 

Together, they envision a near future where oil and gas stay in the ground; where a caring economy provides social supports for all; where wealth is redistributed from the bloated billionaire class; and where stolen land is rightfully reclaimed under the jurisdiction and sovereignty of Indigenous peoples.

 

PLEASE NOTE: For the safety and comfort of all patrons, masks are strongly encouraged for those attending in person this Spring. Livestream tickets are available upon request for those who prefer to attend remotely.

 

Books are available from our friends at Perfect Books.
