In the encyclical Laodato Si, Pope Francis describes the earth as 'the new poor', opening it up as a place in need of liberation. The fate of the poor, the marginalised, and those on the wrong side of the western colonial project is inextricably tied up with the fate of the planet. In A Liberation for the Earth Anupama Ranawana explores the nexus between climate, race and the liberative potential of the cross. Reflecting on the entanglement between colonialization and the destruction of the planet, she considers how this entanglement is played out and resisted within faith based and secular ecological justice movements in Canada, Sri Lanka and the United Kingdom.
