Kumi Naidoo: Environmental Activists Must 'Name and Shame' Uncooperative Corporations

“There is a greater sense of urgency to move reform forward,” said Greenpeace International Executive Director Kumi Naidoo, in an interview with Democracy Now!’s Amy Goodman in Durban, South Africa. A veteran of the anti-apartheid movement and a leading environmentalist, Naidoo urges activists to “name and shame” uncooperative corporations and governments into entering a dialogue on climate change—and argues that the US is neglecting to participate in talks “at a time when the world needs its leadership.” You can read more of Kumi Naidoo’s analyses of environmental issues here.
