This one-hour special aired Tuesday 12 November on the nationally syndicated Sojourner Truth show on Pacifica’s flagship KPFK live from The Resurgence: North American Forest & Climate Movement Convergence at the Shawnee National Forest in Southern Illinois.

The convergence was organized by the Global Justice Ecology Project (GJEP), Indigenous Environmental Network (IEN) and Shawnee Forest Defense! as a call to action to plan for the future.

Panelists include members from the Rural Coalition, a partner in the effort to stop the release of genetically engineered trees into forests.

GJEP partners with the Sojourner Truth show every Wednesday on Earth Minute and every Thursday on Earth Watch.
