Dispatches from Dakar II

Audio reports from the World Social Forum produced for broadcast on campus/community radio globally.

In this segment of Dispatches from Dakar we will hear from Desmond D'Sa from the South Durban Community Environmental Alliance speaking on grassroots organizing currently taking place in Durban, South Africa to protest the UN summit on climate change to take place between November 28th & December 9th 2011.

In this interview D'Sa outlines a climate justice from South African perspective, highlighting recent extreme weather events in the country and the fact that communities in South Africa directly impacted by climate change have not been consulted or involved in the upcoming UN conference in their city.
