While catastrophic, the Coronavirus crisis also breaks normality and is therefore an opportunity. The planet is and has been in crisis. In crises, in fact, as no issue is isolated. Lives, livelihoods, land, and nature are sacrificed for corporate profit. Those who were already most targeted are hit the hardest. Shell’s AGM is going ahead behind closed doors, with only 2 shareholders present, days after our broadcast. While corporate multinationals like Shell are scrambling to profit from this crisis, and governments bend to their demands, we must ask ourselves: which future do we want to bail out?
With a line-up of six incredible womxn, our host -activist, filmmaker and poet Chihiro Geuzebroek- will moderate two engaging panel discussions that will analyse the crises as we know them and visions of the just, decolonial recovery we need. Decolonial environmental justice activist Suzanne Dhaliwal will kick off the sessions by providing an overarching analysis of the crises we are facing before we delve deeper into conversation with our other fantastic speakers and guest artists!
