Compared to most other political movements, Greens have a track record of inclusive politics, and have long welcomed refugees and Muslims into their ranks. But without a comprehensive approach to the issue of Islamophobia, Green parties sometimes fall into patterns of institutionalised prejudice. Written by Samir Jeraj. Read by Julia Lagoutte.

Veganism, the ethical choice, was once born of necessity. Today’s regular omnivore diet was previously a luxury for the wealthy, ill afforded by peasants. Preserving food was a means of subsistence. Can pickling and jamming traditions, now making a comeback, be recognised for their cultural heritage in addition to gentrified sauerkraut and cherry compote recipes?   Written by Anka Wandzel.   Read by Julia Lagoutte.   Text version: https://www.greeneuropeanjournal.eu/a-recipe-for-survival/  Follow us on socials: @greeneujournal.  Green Wave is produced by the Green Eur ..read more

While those taking direct action are accused of alienating policymakers and public opinion, a study of mainstream media in the United Kingdom, Germany, and Italy suggests that the othering and demonisation of climate activists are neither new nor unbiased.

Housing is the focus in this episode - something we all need but which is increasingly expensive and in short supply, due in large part to the financialisation of the housing market.

Slovak voters head to the polls on the 30th September for early parliamentary elections. And one of the winners looks set to be former Prime Minister Robert Fico, who was forced out after the 2018 murder of investigative journalist Ján Kuciak and his companion Martina Kušnírová. So what happened? Taking us through covid and the war in Ukraine, Zuzana Kepplová unpacks the last few years of Slovak politics and explains how Igor Matovič and his SMER party, who took over after 2018, have laid the groundwork for this far-right come-back.
