Essay on the environmental justice movement. The environmental justice movement has emerged over the last two decades as a result of an increasing awareness of the high impacts of environmental pollution on economically and politically disadvantaged communities. It was the product of the intersection between the civil rights and environmental movements. The movement brought together issues of social, economic, and political marginalization of minorities and low-income communities, and concerns over pollution in neighbourhoods and in the workplace. Hence, we should wonder how a social movement based on environmental justice upraises. What are the conditions that have to be gathered and above all what are the obstacles that the environmental justice movement has to cope with in order to be visible and effective on the public scene? First of all, Stella Capek offers us a concrete frame to environmental justice movement as a claims-making activity. Then, Blowers and Leroy focus on the concept of peripheralisation in order to denounce environmental racism that, in turn, gives birth to environmental justice demand.
