THE RED MOVEMENT BOOK ON BARNES & NOBLE
The Red Movement is a grassroots environmental and social justice movement that connects the injustices against the Earth to the injustices against people. Currently, we are in the midst of a human rights and environmental problem because more people are living in slave-like conditions than ever before in history and the environmental is being damaged at an unprecedented rate.
The Red Movement takes the modern social justice movement to a new level by showing how environmental justice is a human rights issue. It provides solutions to these deeper social problems by putting consumers in the driver’s seat. It reveals how the same mindset that allows for the exploitation of the Earth for resources and money also exploits people for the exact same reasons. A dangerous crossroads that has continued too long, thereby contributing to the breakdown of social and environmental justice today.
This movement provides new perspectives to fighting these old social problems through conscious consumerism that support corporations, products, and even events that leave behind a positive legacy for the environment and people generations to come.
Look at it this way, if one person buys a product from a company or supports an event that results in the violation of basic human rights (by using slave labor, forced labor, or child labor to make the product) or environmentally damages the Earth (by polluting it) nothing happens.
Yet, when millions of people buy products from the same company or support the same events that exploit people and the planet, then we are collectively promoting, supporting, and expanding these unethical practices every day.
Millions of people never realize that they have unknowingly purchased products and thereby supported corporations that:
1) mistreat their workers
2) exploit their basic human rights
3) expose them to dangerous conditions
4) deny them a livable wage
5) dump toxic chemicals and materials into the environment, and/or
6) overflow landfills with hazardous waste and toxins.
By buying these products and thereby supporting these corporations, we engage in unchecked consumerism that is ravaging our planet and leading to the greatest human rights and environmental crises in history. The Red Movement takes the modern social justice movement forward by giving people solutions and unveiling the cloak of secrecy.
While environmental abuse has grown so has modern-day slavery, the worst injustice towards mankind. The reality is that slavery never really ended; it just changed form and became more embedded and underground than every before.
While the world is declared ‘slave free,’ the truth is just the opposite. People are still bought and sold in public auctions, forced to sell their bodies for sex or work in hidden factories or farms under unbearable conditions to harvest or make the items we consume. Some even toil away on construction sites for the world’s most famous sporting events.
The issue of social injustice has infiltrated almost every area of our lives from the clothes we wear to the diamonds we buy, electronics, shoes, toys, cosmetics, jewelry, and even computers and food. We consume products not knowing that each of these industries has been tainted by modern-day slavery and we purchase these items thereby promoting and expanding these practices. That is why modern-day slavery, also known as human trafficking, is a 32 billion dollar industry.
People have been completely unaware that they have been supporting and expanding these unethical practices by buying these products that lead to the abuse of the Earth and/or the abuse of people who make them.
We can’t wait on governments or non-profits to make a difference, otherwise we wouldn’t be in this situation. The average everyday person has enormous power to right these wrongs in ways that few realize, until now.
The Red Movement works to push the issue of social justice forward by creating a grassroots, international effort to stop systemic injustice, modern-day slavery, and the destruction of the planet through awareness, advocacy, and action. Black Lives Matter opened people’s eyes to the injustices in plain sight. The Red Movement pushes the door wide open to the injustices that we don’t see but are just as damaging to people and the Earth.
The mission of the movement is to empower people to make conscious choices that align with their beliefs by supporting corporations, practices, and events that promote basic human rights and the environment.
Consumerism and business must be used as a force for good and many young consumers are demanding this. A business model that exploits the Earth and it’s people for a greater profit margin is not sustainable or acceptable. These are the principles the RED Movement is built upon.
