This webinar places extractive fossil fuel industries in the political context of the ongoing pandemic, and state violence against Black communities. It focuses on the machinations of the fossil fuel industry to get a public bailout and a reprieve from regulations, using the pandemic as cover. It also explores how the militarized response to the ongoing Black Lives Matter protests is a window into how far powerful industries could go to protect their privileges.
We’ll put the machinations of the fossil fuel industry in a broader context and address how movements are resisting this agenda
