Climate Refugee

Elijah Mckenzie Jackson,
Artist, Student and Fridays for Future Organiser
The climate crisis and the refugee emergency are intersectional. The refugee emergency will only worsen through climate inaction. Our world leaders are heading in a direction of authoritarianism in regards to immigration laws putting refugees in an even more dangerous situation (legally and socially).

By 2050 — 1 Billion People will be displaced by the Climate Crisis. Not only this but fossil fuel extraction has previously led to extreme conflict which could increase this figure too. With little support and infrastructure to deal with this consequence of climate change, many more innocent people from marginalised communities will suffer.

That is why we are fighting for Climate justice: that being systematic solutions to climate change which addresses social inequality and reparation for all deserving... including refugees.
