Guerrilla History

Nov 18, 2021

In this episode of Guerrilla History, Adnan facilitates a discussion about the recently wrapped up COP26 climate conference, its failures, and what we should look to do going forward!  We are calling this a "Dispatch" as it's a shorter, more "in the moment" episode to ground us for current events.  Our guests are Vijay Prashad, Executive Director of the Tricontinental Institute for Social Research, who was at COP26, and Chris Saltmarsh, co-founder of Labour for a Green New Deal, climate activist, and writer.

Vijay Prashad is the author of many books, including The Darker Nations, The Poorer Nations, and Washington Bullets.  He was also the first guest on Guerrilla History, so be sure to go back and check out the episode we did with him on Washington Bullets!  Follow him on twitter @vijayprashad.  Chris Saltmarsh is the author of the new book Burnt: Fighting for Climate Justice, and regularly writes about the climate.  His two newest articles in Tribune are 2.4 Degrees Is a Disaster-But COP Won't Stop It, and COP26 Can Learn From West Papua's Green Resistance.  You can follow Chris on twitter @Chris_Saltmarsh.
