"Fighting the systems that are in place is vital to the continuation of life on earth for all people, and all species. It is up to us to have the political will to make radical change, like so many activists that came before us who we are indebted to. The term 'political ecology' acknowledges approaches to the environment that, although potentially divergent, nevertheless insist on environmental matters of concern as inextricable from social, political and economic forces. Since environmental stresses can be both a drive and consequence of injustice and inequality - including poverty, racism, and neocolonial violence - political ecology recognizes  that the ways we regard nature carry deep implications and often unacknowledged ramifications for how we organize society assign responsibility for environmental change, and asses social impact." - T.J Demos, Decolonizing Nature
