For the second time in as many months, global warming activists have called on their peers to stop wearing the offending attire.
In a video titled “We Are all Victims of Climate Change” released on Thursday, the artists claim that it is time to stop “the endless war of climate change” against them and the people who make up their community.
In the video, “We are all victims” singer, Ariana Grande, a prominent advocate for global warming, says, “You are the people that are killing us.”
“It’s the most ignorant, selfish, and selfish thing I’ve ever seen,” she continues.
“And I know that because I’ve seen it happen.”
She also accuses the industry of pandering to the “white male” and the “fear of change” to its core audience.
“I’ve always wanted to be the biggest, the best, and I want to be a part of this movement that says, ‘We are better than this,'” she says, adding that it’s not about climate change.
“It’s about change.
And you are the cause.””
There’s a new global war brewing,” she says.
“We’re all victims of climate Change.”
In response to the video’s release, the organizers of the Global Warm Up Summit, which takes place this week in Los Angeles, have issued a statement in which they call the artists’ comments “slanderous, defamatory, and insulting.”
“While we respect artists’ right to free speech, the fact is that the vast majority of people who wear clothing with symbols associated with white supremacy, patriarchy, or other oppressive ideologies are men and are not in a position to express themselves freely,” the statement reads.
“This is not a coincidence, and it is a direct response to this very provocative video.”
“We are aware that some people will not agree with our stance, but we are asking artists and others who wish to participate to consider this very simple question: How many people are you representing, and are you willing to work with those who use these symbols to silence and marginalize us?” the statement continues.
“If you choose to wear clothing that denigrates or insults others, it is completely irresponsible and counter to the values of the movement we are part of.
We will not be silenced.
And if you choose not to wear a specific clothing item or wear it at all, you should be proud of your choice.”
The Global W.A.T.M.S. (Women’s Activism, Movement, and Survival) movement began in the 1960s as a response to a wave of protests against the Vietnam War.
Its origins can be traced back to the late 1960s and early 1970s, when feminist activist Alice Walker, who became known as a fierce critic of the Vietnam war, was arrested in New York City for refusing to remove her headscarf.
Walker later wrote a book called The W. A. T. M.S., which was the first book to expose the sexual exploitation of women and girls in the military.
It became a rallying cry for the movement, and activists from around the world started wearing the traditional headscarves.
In 1977, the United Nations endorsed the concept and the World Trade Organization began allowing the garment industry to trade on its name.
In the 1980s, the World Economic Forum (WEF) declared that global warming was “the greatest global threat to human civilization since the Industrial Revolution,” and in 1991, the U.N. adopted a global agreement to combat climate change by the year 2000.
