Abstract

This paper analyses the ways in which marginalized communities respond to intentional environmental discrimination by political and economic elites. In order to do so, I will briefly reflect on the terms subalternity and environmentalism; and I will characterise subaltern environmentalism in terms of political orientation, types of communities involved, conception of the environment and issues of concern, and positionality. In order to test the previously developed blueprint I will use the case study of Can Sant Joan (Catalonia), a working-class migrant neighbourhood where a movement against waste incineration emerged when the Asland cement plant got a permission to use refuse derived fuels in 2006.
