Audio reports on struggles for environmental justice, produced for broadcast on campus/community radio stations globally, featuring voices from around the world engaged in front-line struggles for climate justice.

In this segment we will hear an interview with Patrick Bond of the Centre for Civil Society (CCS) at the University of KwaZulu-Natal in Durban, South Africa. Bond speaks on the activist convergence, rooted in a climate justice analysis, aiming to confront the upcoming UN climate summit taking place in Durban, South Africa, between November 28th & December 9th. In this interview Bond details the mobilization efforts in South Africa lead-by activists and community organizers from communities directly impacted by climate change both in South Africa and globally.

Also in this interview Bond highlights the importance of activists in Canada to take action to protest the presence of Canadian government officials at the UN climate summit given the consistent efforts by Canada in recent years to block global efforts on climate change and for support toward environmentally destructive industries in Canada by the Conservative government such as the tar sands in Alberta.
