Climate Change & State Violence
Abstract: Climate change is already here, and at the same time, we witness a world where the state often defers to violence and control during unrest. How do we prepare ourselves for what is to come? This workshop aims to let us dive into the connections between climate change and state violence (including policing, militarization, incarceration, and criminalization). It holds a space for dialogue around these intersections, as well as the feelings that emerge. In the second part of the workshop, we will envision community-based responses to climate change, so that we can start to better prepare placing our safety in our hands.
