Policing pushes extractive frontiers and facilitates extractive projects, facilitates the expansion of ‘green’ capitalism, and upholds the right to kill and exploit nonhuman animals. Police forces, militaries, and private security firms maintain a social ecological order, grounded in human-nature separation, the prioritisation of property and growth, and social hierarchies, that is inherently ecocidal. Policing enforces environmental injustice, so as activists and scholars, we need to embrace abolition of policing in our fight for environmental justice.
Por Raquel Neyra El regreso de la izquierda al gobierno de Perú representa el fin de la era de violencia, corrupción y racismo Fujimorista; a la vez, la tensión entre la redistribución de las riquezas mineras y la defensa de los territorios frente al extractivismo será un desafío clave para el gobierno, y para los movimientos sociales.
By Raquel Neyra The return of the left in the government of Peru represents the end of the Fujimori era of violence, corruption and racism; at the same time, the tension between the redistribution of mining wealth and the defense of territories against extractivism will be a key challenge for the government, as well as for grassroots movements.

By Diana Vela Almeida y Melissa Moreano Venegas. Banker Guillermo Lasso has won the presidency of Ecuador in the midst of a political dispute dividing the country's Left. It is as participants in this struggle that we ask ourselves, how can we build agreements, alliances and, above all, a mutually transformative social and ecological base to confront the devastating effects of neoliberalism?
Por Diana Vela Almeida y Melissa Moreano Venegas. El banquero Guillermo Lasso ha conquistado la presidencia del Ecuador en medio de una pugna política entre las izquierdas del país. En esa pugna es desde donde nos preguntamos: ¿cómo se logran acuerdos, alianzas y, sobre todo, cómo se construye una base social y ecológica mutuamente transformadora para hacer frente a los devastadores efectos del neoliberalismo?
By Ankita Shrestha. Communities are not always formed by the social boundaries that we, as researchers, may identify, but are often formed by symbolic boundaries subject to individual social actors’ conception of differences and similarities that are hard to pin down. Who I present my research findings to, how, and when, can therefore never be neutral.

It is important to deconstruct who and what we honour and remember through the monuments and representations of history in our cities, as well as to reflect on how, and on what grounds, we bring about this remembrance.
by Alexander Dunlap Why do degrowth intellectuals publicly neglect combative self-defense against “growth” projects? The connection between degrowth and anti-capitalist, autonomist and (ecological) anarchist movements exists, and it can be strengthened by acknowledging the legitimacy of a diversity of tactics as necessary pathways towards degrowing the techno-capitalist system and protecting habitats form infrastructural invasion.

In the fourth essay of the series “Reimagining, remembering, and reclaiming water”, we learn how understanding some of the common roots of the anti-water charges and beef farmer movements in Ireland, may help us to re-imagine, remember and reclaim a form of environmental politics that is from below, popular, and has justice at its core.
