“to see with the eyes of faith”

There is an eloquent speech by Naomi Klein to the founding convention of UNIFOR (the fusion of the CanadianAutoworkers and the CEP). In this inspiring speech Klein calls on unions to join the struggle to create a new story that counters the narrative of what she refers to as “Extractivism”.

She says that climate change is not an issue to add to the list of things to worry about. It is a civilizational wake-up call. To read the full text of her speech, delivered September 1, see: www.t.grupoapoyo.org.
