Ecosocialist Book Club ?

April 26, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Join us the Ecosocialist Book Club as we selectively work through “Eco-Imperialism, Settler Colonialism, and Indigenous Resistance”, a reading list compiled by the Marxist Education Project. You can access the syllabus here.

It is impossible to understand the ecological crisis without putting it in the context of capital accumulation and colonial expansion. From Standing Rock and Idle No More to the tide of indigenous resistance in Latin America and beyond, Native communities remain on the front lines. This syllabus draws from a diverse array of theorists to develop a systematic understanding of the ways in which capitalism, colonial domination, and ecological destruction intersect, and of the forms of struggle and solidarity it will take to overcome them.

For this meeting, we will discussing the article “The New Imperialism: Accumulation by Dispossession” by David Harvey. You can access the reading here.
