Karl Marx, 1867: “Even an entire society, a nation, or all simultaneously existing societies taken together, are not owners of the earth. They are simply its possessors, its beneficiaries, and have to bequeath it in an improved state to succeeding generations.” The Earth, 2019: “You should really listen to this guy :-(” It’s impossible to build a socialist future without taking into account the ecological crises facing the planet. If you’re interested in learning more about the climate crisis as our opportunity and obligation to build a better world, and imagining what that world will look like, come join the Ecosocialist reading group.

Our first meeting will be discussing the introduction of Naomi Klein’s On Fire: the (Burning) Case for a Green New Deal. Available here: https://www.simonandschuster.com/books/On-Fire/Naomi-Klein/9781982129910 or email [email protected] for more options or questions.
