For many years, mainstream media has portrayed Pacific Islanders as victims, a faraway people who are unable to do anything about the causes of climate change. But Pacific youth are changing this narrative! 👉​“​We Are Not Drowning, We Are Fighting! [...] We are not victims but powerful, peaceful warriors, drawing on [our] cultural strength to confront the fossil fuel industry that threatens our very existence," said climate justice organizer Fenton Lutunatabua on 350.org. ​👉 We are proud to support the Pacific Climate Warriors program though our sister foundation, Cultures of Resistance Network, via our long-term partner 350.org ​🛑 Learn more about climate resistance in the Pacific via our film WANTOKS: dance of resilience in Melanesia!
