Representative Ocasio-Cortez (D) tweeted on Tuesday evening that the major reason for global migration is climate change. She backed up her tweet with a link to a video by a Canadian organization called The Leap.
According to The Leap’s manifesto, it is a plan to promote a clean energy economy and address racism and economic inequality.
The Leap Manifesto is a plan for how Canada can move to a clean energy economy in a way that addresses systemic racism and economic inequality. The Leap Manifesto was initiated in the spring of 2015 at a two-day meeting attended by representatives from Canada’s Indigenous rights, social and food justice, environmental, faith-based and labour movements. The meeting was convened to move beyond saying “no” to the worst attacks on our rights and environment, and to dream together about the country we actually want and how to get there. The manifesto was shaped by the contributions of dozens of people.
The far-right loves to drum up fear & resistance to immigrants.
But have you ever noticed they never talk about what‘s causing people to flee their homes in the first place?
Perhaps that’s bc they’d be forced to confront 1 major factor fueling global migration:
Climate change. https://t.co/zyJzTjEgHt
