Join us as we return to Århus for a week of workshops, discussions, community building and reclaiming the change that we want to see in the world! Last year our focus was on false green solutions in protest of the Århus harbour expansion, this year we want to talk about wealth inequality, class, green colonialism, and who is profiteering from the crises of these times. We imagine the camp to be a space of care and co-creation where we sleep in tents, cook food together, share visions of a just future over bonfires and enable affinity group actions.
Capitalism is booming, which means that things are only getting worse for most of us. War, climate crises, borders shutting, deepening economic inequality everywhere. As more and more people are struggling to make ends meet, Danish corporate giants like Maersk, Novo Nordisk or Arla are raking in record profits.
The Danish government’s current green transition is by design based on continued growth and increased extraction of rare resources under exploitative conditions. Examples are not hard to find; in the name of the “green” transition and making way for their wind farms, Danish companies like Vestas are complicit in taking land from Sami peoples. Meanwhile, the Danish government and companies are looking to extract Greenland’s resources. This system of exploitation encourages us to ignore the fact that it is built on colonialism, extractivism, white supremacy, class division, and inequality. It encourages us to ignore all the ways people are being oppressed.
Let’s create new narratives and strategies in the social justice, climate justice, and anti-capitalist movements. Strategies that make the enemy clear and the radical changes apparent. Let’s set our imaginations free of capital and imagine societies of care, collectivity, and justice.
