I have organized a campaign to get thousands of young people to sign on to an Amicus (Friend of the Court) brief that they will file with the 9th Circuit in support of the Juliana Plaintiffs in the Children’s Climate Lawsuit. This is an amazing lawsuit filed by 21 kids, demanding their right to life and liberty which is threatened by government policies abetting climate change. We’ve gathered a team of constitutional scholars to write our brief, and just went live with a powerful video we shot with the kids. The brief will be filed on behalf of Zero Hour, a worldwide youth-led climate action movement. This case could be the Obergefell (marriage equality) of climate. Will almost definitely reach the Supreme Court. Any help I could get with publicizing this, especially to young people who can sign our brief, would be greatly appreciated. Website is above, which contains a link to our video (Twitter), also here (Facebook) and buttons for sharing. Thanks!
The Prepaid Economy: African edition began as a means to track notes on the rise of Africa as an investment opportunity back in January 2010. Today it has over 28,000 readers on Tumblr, engaging an audience of young Afropolitans. We will be beginning a new series of discussion posts where engagement from our readers is encouraged. This Friday (25th January) we will be having our very first moderated conversation and the topic at hand will be “China’s presence in Africa.” If there are any particular article links or thoughts that you would like to see addressed in the discussion, feel free to share them and we’ll be sure to integrate them into the post. We look forward to hearing your input and hosting a productive conversation on the effects of China’s presence in Africa.
