The Extinction Rebellion Taiwan newsletter

May 22nd, 2020

從今年年初各國因疫情蔓延,各國紛紛關閉國界、限制國內旅遊,這對於航空業的衝擊有多大呢?截至目前全球航空業者將損失3,140億美元營收,全球健康危機使得航空業者破產,目前英國的Flybe(弗萊比航空)、美國Trans States Airlines (州際航空)、澳洲Virgin(維京航空)、Avianca(哥倫比亞航空)及其他航空業皆已宣布破產,原本在產業工作成千上萬的員工該何去何從?

XR訴求2025以前淨零碳排,航空旅遊大量的碳足跡與我們的目標相斥,但我們明白該產業是許多家庭收入的來源,以此,我們不僅是氣候正義的團體也是社會正義的團體,我們期待在現有破壞性的體制轉換至永續體制過程中,為一個公平的變革。建立公民大會(英文連結) 可壤公民們向專家諮詢,找尋自己所需要的資源,無論是就職再訓練以投入永續的產業或提供經濟支援或任何前所未見的方式。

ENGLISH


Since the beginning of 2020, countries have started closing their borders and limiting domestic travel due to the virus. How has this affected the airline industry? It is currently estimated that the global airline industry will lose $314 billion USD in revenue. The global health crisis could drive many airlines into bankruptcy, and we are starting to see that now. Airlines like Flybe (U.K), Trans State Airline (U.S), Virgin Australia, Avianca (Colombia), and others have already declared bankruptcy. What does this mean for the millions of people that work in these fields?

As XR, we demand net zero carbon emissions by 2025. The massive carbon footprint of air travel is incompatible with this goal. However, we understand that millions depend on these industries for their income. We are not just a climate justice movement, but a social justice movement as well, and we want an equitable transition from our current destructive system to a new, sustainable one. The creation of citizens' assemblies (link) will allow everyday citizens to consult with experts and find ways to meet everyone's needs, whether that be through re-training to sustainable industries, providing financial support to people looking for work or entirely different methods that we haven't thought of yet.

NEXT VIRTUAL MEETING

meeting

Our next virtual meeting will be this Saturday 5/23 from 6-7pm. If you would like to attend, please email us and we will send you a link to Mattermost (our online communciation platform). We will send the password and login code for the Zoom meeting there, as it is more secure.

Systems Thinking Reading Group

Are you interested in learning about systems science and acquiring systems thinking skills? Come join our reading group! The call will take place on June 20th from 5 to 6pm. We will have a 15 page reading assignment before the call. The call will be in Chinese but if you would like to attend and cannot speak Chinese, we will have two groups! One in English and one in Chinese. :) If you are interested, drop us an email and we will send you the reading selection soon.

Mattermost and Newsletter Training

We will be having a mattermost training coming up soon! Mattermost is where we have most of our communication. We will also be training people to help us with our newsletter. We are planning the time for the meeting and would love to hear your availability. Come join us!

UPCOMING BEACH CLEAN-UP

We will be working with Taiwan Adventure Outings and holding a beach clean-up on June 13th in Keelung (note: the original date was May 23rd but due to the pandemic it has been moved). As we get closer to the date, we will send out the event link and address. However, as this health crisis is very unpredictable, the date may be changed. The most important thing right now is to ensure that everyone will be safe participating in this action.
