‘Like I wasn’t there’: climate activist Vanessa Nakate on being erased from a movement
“When I saw the photo, I only saw part of my jacket. I was not on the list of participants. None of my comments from the press conference were included,” she said. “It was like I wasn’t even there.”
The 23-year-old Ugandan activist had appeared at a joint press conference in Davos with other prominent climate activists, including Greta Thunberg, Loukina Tille, Luisa Neubauer and Isabelle Axelsson.
But when the news agency published a picture of the event, Nakate had been cut from the image – which showed only the four white activists.
