Gains in environmental regulation to insure safe water, air [...]

Beyond the Green New Deal -- Eco-Socialism & Decolonization by Michael Novick, Anti-Racist Action-Los Angeles/People Against Racist Terror (ARA-LA/PART) Environmental catastrophes in southern Africa and in the US mid-west underscore the fact that life-threatening damage from capitalist-induced climate change is happening already.

Capitalism, Climate Crisis & Ecosocialist Solutions

Community Forum on the Climate Crisis, Capitalism, and Ecosocialism by David Klein The climate crisis is the greatest threat humanity has ever faced. At the current rate of greenhouse gas emissions, we are headed for 4°C to 7°C of warming above pre-industrial global averages within the lifetimes of young people. Temperature increases in this range would lead to a hothouse planet with devastating extreme weather events, and make most if not all of our planet uninhabitable. Global warming is an existential threat to humanity and countless other [...]

Thankfully, Chase has a dedicated [...]

Standing Rock: Its Meaning

Standing Rock:  Its Meaning by Courage the Activist What you’re witnessing in North Dakota right now are all seven bands of the Lakota together again after 150 years. You’re witnessing 12,000 people roughing -20° F nights to gather in prayer and exhaust more forms of non-violent direct action than I’ve ever seen a movement employ. What you’re witnessing are 300 tribes that have found a common fight to wage: a gathering of the nations who have prepared one another, as relations, for a spiritual battle. Of course, [...]
