This week, Eleanor Goldfield addresses two radical frontline fights thousands of miles apart but deeply connected through their visions and struggles for a livable and just future. Eleanor sits down with Sasha Lorenz from the Lützerath Lebt movement to discuss the recent literal bulldozing of people’s lives for the sake of some 280 million tonnes of brown coal. Sasha outlines the context of this struggle in Germany’s dirty push for more coal mining amidst greenwashing campaigns and continued capitalist and colonialist enterprises. In the second segment, Coyote from the Defend Atlanta Forest movement joins the show again to discuss the recent murder of forest defender Manuel “Tortuguita” Teran. The situation on the ground and in the trees in Atlanta, and both of our guests, leave us with messages of real and growing hope – the kind that can not be stifled by coal ash or murdered by police brutality. All this and more coming up this week on the Project Censored Show.
