Democracy Now! continues to look at the world’s response to the U.S. election with South African activist Kumi Naidoo, a global ambassador for Africans Rising for Justice, Peace and Dignity, former secretary-general of Amnesty International and former head of Greenpeace.
Naidoo says President Donald Trump’s loss to Joe Biden is good news, but notes that the world lost four crucial years to tackle the climate crisis and other issues because of the Trump administration.
“This is a relief, but it is not something for us to — at this stage, anyway — celebrate with any great enthusiasm,” he says.
