Speakers:

  • Kevin Anderson, author of Marx at the Margins
  • Cristina A., youth activist and participant in NY climate march
  • Lisa Lubow, historian and activist

At an objective level, the ecological crisis has reached new heights of urgency, while at a subjective level, a massive movement against climate change and fossil fuels has formed, as seen most recently in the 400,000+ march in New York. Within this movement, including in LA, a strong “system change” tendency, which puts the question of capitalism itself on the agenda, has emerged. The speakers will respond to this new situation by considering Marxism and ecology both in theory and in practice.
