The History of White Women’s Racism and White Supremacy- by Kim Kelly

GATHER YOUR PEOPLE WHITE WOMEN MUST HOLD EACH OTHER ACCOUNTABLE FOR RACISM We know that 53 percent of white women voted for Donald Trump.

Tracking the battles for environmental justice: here are the world’s top 10

Environmental justice activism is to this age what the workers’ movement was for the industrial age – one of the most influential social movements of its time.

In contrast, labour conflicts, including strikes and lock-outs, carry such gravity that the International Labour Organization tracks these on a systematic…
