If we hope to combat issues like climate change we must abandon individualistic approaches to activism. From Superstorm Sandy to Hurricane Katrina, the destructive power of climate change is impossible to deny, and yet we are told that ‘buying green’ will somehow end global warming. Confronting Injustice seeks to draw out the structural roots of man-made climate change and argues that today’s activists must focus on mass collective action – like the recent mass mobilisation for climate justice in New York – and abandon hopeless consumer-based ‘solutions’.
