Episode 6 of “American Climate Rebels” premieres Sunday May 19 at 7pm (UK time)

In 2018, Reel News went on a 14 week tour of North America to look at grassroots struggles around climate change, particularly struggles around a “just transition” from fossil fuels to renewable energy, where workers and communities control the process so that they benefit from the transition, and around “just recovery” – recovery from extreme weather events which do not exascerbate current inequalities.
What we found were inspiring and visionary struggles all over the continent, led by working class communities of colour, with people organising just transitions and just recoveries themselves. Now, you can see what we found in a weekly online 11 episode series.

This week: Kentucky, where coal miners from one of the centres of historic militancy of the U.S. trade union movement are organising to end coal and move to renewable energy.
