“Leave Africa Alone” – Solidarity With The Voices Of The Voiceless: Ina-Maria Shikongo

Climate journalist and host of the ClimateGenn podcast.

In this ClimateGenn episode I am speaking with Namibian Activist, Ina-Maria Shikongo (Twitter: @IMariaShikongo). Ina-Maria has been speaking out about the unlawful exploitation of the Okavango Delta in Africa, calling on the Canadian oil company, Recon Africa, to leave Namibia.

This conversation highlights the plight of countries like Namibia in Africa and beyond, where consumption in the west creates misery and destruction elsewhere. 

It is absolutely critical that we understand that wider destruction is accelerating back towards us and, if we don’t take radical action to change course and consume much less, as Ina-Maria points out, the future will be bleak for us too.
