In a world filled with hashtags and trending topics, one discourse that's been simmering on the back burner deserves a spotlight: environmental justice. Patricia Martinez Torreblanca, the General Secretary of the Faculty of Political and Social Sciences at UNAM, recently threw down the eco-gauntlet during the International Colloquium on Socio-ecological Transformation and Environmental Justice. Move over, climate change; we're diving into the underbelly of socio-ecological transformation.
Martinez Torreblanca, with the fervor of a sci-fi enthusiast at Comic-Con, highlighted the historical issues Latin America has been having with nature. It's not just about polar bears losing their icy pads; it's about communities engaged in a perpetual cha-cha to develop autonomously. The struggle, she emphasizes, is real, and it's happening from the grassroots up, like a grassroots rebellion in the garden of Gaia.
