Policing environmental injustice – embracing abolition of policing

By Andrea Brock & Nathan Stephens-Griffith.  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.

Infrastructural Citizenship: A Case for Adding Political Ecology

By Jessica Hope. Attentiveness to political ecology sharpens our insight into how state-society-nature relationships are remade by new infrastructure, and reveals the ways that infrastructure enacts, supports and undermines different ways that people live with – and in – a place.
