Description


Note: We interviewed Declan before the decision was taken by the Haldane society to censure Keir Starmer, we also had a few problems with Alexs mic!

If you believe it's going to take a mass movement to stir humanity away from a climate disaster , you're probably going to want the Trade Union movement involved in that. Trade Unions have a long history of mobilising workers for their rights and that's the expertise we need right now. 

This week on the show we are joined by Declan  Owens (@owens_declan)  for GMB for a Green New Deal.  We talk about securing a just transition for fossil fuel dependent workers, organising inside a union and what it takes to be a socialist lawyer.
