INFOGRAPHIC: PRISON AND CLIMATE CHANGE — #FLOODtheSYSTEM
From enabling disaster capitalism to compounding horrid living conditions, this infographic exposes the connections between the prison system and climate change.
"The prison system and the climate crisis share the same destructive and exploitative root causes, disparately placing their capitalistic burdens on black and indigenous communities and the earth for white profit. As an organizer, I see it as my responsibility to understand how these crises are interrelated. I do not believe in false solutions, such as the greening of prisons or preparing them to face climate impacts, but rather will fight for their abolition." -Cecilia Pineda, Infographic Author, RADIKO SHARE THIS: This is the first in a series of infographics connecting the dots between climate, unjust economic practices,and the unequal and racist foundation upon which our lives are built.
