Whatever Happens, We’re Already Winning

Talking Paris COP 21: Whatever happens, we’re already winning

I know that we are already successful because the transition we seek is well underway and gaining momentum. The status quo of reckless resource exploitation, profit-fueled pollution and gutless capitalism is in its death throes. It will be a long and violent death, and we must fortify ourselves and younger generations for a vicious final face-off. We must seek allies whenever and wherever we can. We must cultivate compassion for each other and for ourselves, because change is hard and uncomfortable and we all rebel against it regardless of how deeply we believe in it. We must exalt in the knowledge that we are already winning.
—Catherine Abreu, COP 21 Delegate, Ecology Action Centre, Halifax, NS
