"Many people claim protesters and activists are obviously rich to be able to take time out to protest. I don’t see this myself, I see ordinary people, some rich, some poor, making sacrifices to protest. I see wealthier people, using their savings, making themselves poor, to fund protesting. I see poor people, with nothing, sacrificing the little they have to protest. The wealthier are called entitled, the poor accused of funding protests via benefits. These insults contribute nothing, they are just words. We’re all just renting the space we inhabit, none of us truly own anything. My big concern is individualising the solutions to the climate and ecological crisis we most certainly face, takes the pressure off the fossil fuel industries, who are the big players in saving humanity". Join hosts Stuart and William, in their usual far reaching discussion style podcast, as they examine a question from Wendy in Exeter, Devon, England. They're here to persuade, entertain and inspire you to make different choices in the way we go forward in life, individually and collectively.
