Forces on the right -- from Bolsonaro to Trump -- are pushing forward with a pro-extraction agenda that threatens to uproot our communities and destroy our planet. This panel will highlight and build solidarity with the urgently-needed struggles against fossil fuels and extractive industries across the globe. From the battles against climate crisis, the fight against pipelines and for indigenous rights, resistance is taking a wide range of forms, posing opportunities and challenges for linkages between the Global North and South, and a society that puts people before the extraction of profit.
