Listen to KPFK Earth Segment with South Africa’s Desmond D’Sa

Listen to this week’s segment on the environment on KPFK Los Angeles’ Sojourner Truth Show.  Global Justice Ecology Project teams up with Margaret Prescod, host of the Sojourner Truth show on their weekly segment on the environment.

This week’s segment features Desmond D’Sa, chairperson of South Durban Community Environmental Alliance in South Africa, an organization in South Africa’s most industrial zone (indeed, the biggest petrochemical cluster in the entire hemisphere) that has led the charge for environmental justice.

On Monday, June 20, Desmond D’Sa, toured the toxic zone around Richmond, California (where Chevron has a refinery) to discuss how California’s environmental legislation could have global repercussions for those most vulnerable to climate pollution.

Desmond is convening a global day of action for climate justice, and is a lead organizer for events at the next UN COP, which will be in Durban this November.
