Ep. 116: Let's Make a Green New Deal (W/ Johanna Bozuwa)
This week on Future Left, we're joined by Johanna Bozuwa to discuss the Green New Deal aka FULL-BLOWN SOCIALISM. Johanna is a program associate at The Democracy Collaborative that works on energy democracy. She is also a bad-ass Steward for the good ol' union that enjoys spending her free time taking long walks down to the hill to shout at Corey Booker and organizing with 350 DC.
This episode has it all: hissing at rich people because they exploit workers and rig the economy, hissing at rich people because they are threatening to make life on earth impossible for most living creatures, and of course, hissing at rich people because they are just bad in a general sense as well. But in all seriousness, we're talking about the Green New Deal and why system change has to be at the heart of all climate action.
As promised, here is Johanna confronting Corey Booker about the Green New Deal.
