Stimulated by the successful French protests, but recognizing that our demands are very different, friends of WIP and volunteer staffers put on these fluorescent vests because—like the people of France—and every other country—we are in a disaster zone!
Our demand is to confront the disaster of rising inequality (exacerbated by our economic system), the elimination of regulatory safety nets (by the Trump Administration and followers), and the reality of climate collapse already destroying our communities.
Yellow vests recognize that we are all “first responders” in the crises we face. In this issue we have several articles that address the political and ecological nature of this disaster—and what kinds of things people are doing to survive it so we can make a healthier world.
