– So We Stand organises to challenge environmental injustices from the frontline. This means recognising that it disproportionately afffects poor and black communities. We think environmental justice, social justice and anti-racism are the same struggle.
– We work directly with frontline communties of resistance against sites of environmental injustice.
– We don’t prioritise our own voices or those of the more priviliged. We prioritise the voices of those already fighting their own battles.
– We are committed to anti-oppression. This means committing to constantly challenging ourselves as; individuals, SWS as an organisation, players in wider systems and structures as well as always being critical of the hierarchies in the world around us.
– We wholeheartedly support all forms of community self-defence. This includes all strategies and methods of empowerment and defence from the people fighting injustices on the frontline. This means not leading, judging or imposing – from us or anyone else.
