About Yi Yi Prue (source https://www.decolonizationinaction.com/episodes/season-4-episode-7):
Yi Yi Prue is an Indigenous lawyer and climate activist from Dhaka, Bangladesh. Prue advocates for the Indigenous perspectives from Bangladesh and Nepal, for example Marma, Munda and Tamang communities, who are heavily affected by climate change-related catastrophes, that are the result of historic colonial and current neocolonial exploitation. In January 2020, she successfully led a complaint at the German Constitutional Court against the insufficient German climate protection measures.
