Jack Brazil is the Green Party candidate for Dunedin. We talk with him about focusing on a “people-powered movement to build a better world”.
It’s about building a movement, sometimes with civil disobience, but always restorative and non-violent.
We have to exercise dissent – to show that there is a better way.
Jack first studied french and psychology before turning to law where a focus on justice meant for him a focus on social and environmental justice driven by a sense of care and compassion, but also a sense of impending crisis of ecological and social collapse.
We are arguing for better – we can show that “better” with a festival approach. To celebrate and take people with us.
“The tide is changing…” he says, “…the activism is back in politics”.
We can’t be too scared to be transformational, too scared to be radical.
